The Scottish Premier League extend Hearts' transfer embargo until December 23 following late payments in October.

The Scottish Premier League have extended Hearts' transfer embargo until December 23.

The Scottish outfit, who were already under an embargo, have once more failed to pay their players and coaching staff on time in October. Six first-team players and manager John McGlynn were among those affected.

Following a meeting of the SPL board, that period has been extended for another 60 days as their off-the-field problems continue.

A statement on the club's official website read: "A sub-committee of the Scottish Premier League Board today considered a charge against Heart of Midlothian Football Club under SPL Rule A6.21, which concerned the club's failure to pay coaching staff and players on time in October.

"The club satisfied the sub-committee that all outstanding wages from October had now been paid and, accordingly, the player registration embargo, which arose from that failure, has now been lifted.

"The charge under SPL Rule A6.21 was admitted by the club. The decision of the sub-committee was to make Heart of Midlothian Football Club immediately subject to a further player registration embargo of 60 days. The club will be embargoed from registering any professional players up to, and including, 23 December 2012."

Hearts currently occupy eighth spot in the SPL.
