Hearts boss Olid expects 'seamless' switch for Powell

Naomi Powell has signed a two-year deal with Hearts, with the American midfielder the latest to move across Edinburgh from Hibernian.

Having previously spent time with Nottingham Forest, Powell joined Grant Scott's side last summer and quickly became a key member of the squad, providing 10 assists throughout the campaign.

"I’m delighted that Naomi has agreed to join us," manager Eva Olid told club media.

"As soon as we spoke, I felt a real connection about how she wanted to play football and our methodology.

"She was a real standout last season for Hibs and particularly caught my eye in the derby matches, with her quality not only in possession, but also out of it.

"Having had that season with Hibs to adjust to Scottish football, where she showed real moments of quality throughout, I have no doubt she will fit into our group seamlessly."
