Cambridge United striker Uche Ikpeazu has agreed to join Scottish Premiership side Hearts when his contract expires in the summer.

The 23-year-old has scored 14 goals for the U's this season and has attracted interest from both English and Scottish clubs.

However, the former Watford forward has now decided to sign for Hearts on a two-year deal that will come into force on July 1.

Following confirmation of his move, Ikpeazu took to social media to thank Cambridge for helping to get his career back on track.

Meanwhile, King's Lynn Town chairman Stephen Cleeve has dismissed speculation linking manager Ian Culverhouse with the vacant Cambridge job.

The former Norwich City assistant boss has been linked with the job at the Abbey Stadium, but Cleeve has insisted that there is "no truth whatsoever" in the rumours.

In other news, Cambridge defender Harrison Dunk has signed a new two-year contract with the club.
