They are a brand that has history with our club and we are looking forward to wearing the brand proudly and exclusively in Scotland during next season.

"We have worked closely with Umbro to provide supporters with new kits and an exciting product range, which will be revealed in the very near future. Once again we are trying to give our fans what we believe they want, while doing the right thing, commercially, for the club. We are confident that this will be a very popular move with our supporters."

Anthony Little, Managing Director for Umbro, commented: "Hearts is a club with fantastic history, not just in football but also with Umbro, last lifting a major trophy wearing the double diamond in 2012. It will be great to see them back in our kits when the 2017-18 season kicks off."

The new Hearts 2017-18 home kit will be available from June, while the new away and third kits will follow at a later date. The new Umbro Hearts Of Midlothian 2017-2018 kit is expected to feature Umbro's classic Double Diamond trim on the sleeves, just as the new Everton 2017-18 home kit.
