Hearts 'keeper Gordon rules out move to Russia

Hearts keeper Craig Gordon insists he will not be forced into a move to Russia.

Gordon returned to the Hearts team in the 1-1 draw with St Mirren yesterday after being dropped last month while the Jambos were involved in transfer negotiations.

He told the News of the World: 'My understanding is Hearts turned down Fulham's bid because it didn't meet their valuation, which is flattering.

'Bayern Munich never met Hearts' asking price either, so there was nothing to consider there.

'People always talk about Arsenal wanting me but there was no offer from Arsene Wenger so what was there to think about?

'As for Spartak Moscow, I just don't see a move to Russia as the best move at this stage of my career.

'If I am going to leave the club I supported as a boy it will be to one of the big leagues. The English Premiership, Italy's Serie A, Spain's La Liga or Germany's Bundesliga.'

The Hearts skipper met Tynecastle majority shareholder Vladimir Romanov on Thursday.

He said: 'We had a nice chat. I told him where I stood, he told me where he stood.

'There were no rows, no accusations, everything was totally amicable. It was no big deal.'
