Ghana legend Abedi Pele has urged Scottish side Hearts to play to Laryea Kingston's strengths next season.

Kingston signed a permanent deal with Hearts last week from the Russian side Terek Grozny.

Pele is confident Laryea his compatriot can be a hit if he is given the right support.

"I think it would be sensible for Hearts to tell the buyers they are not interested in selling just now," the African superstar told the Edinburgh Evening News.

"In a good team, surrounded by good people and good management, Laryea is going to be a real driving force. “I've seen it with Ghana. I first met him two years ago when he was playing for the national team.

"Since then he has become one of the players I admire a lot.

"For Laryea to satisfy the Hearts fans and give them another season wouldn't be bad at all. Then he can move with their blessing."
