Determined Hearts are reportedly ready to hold out for £500,000 plus "significant" add-ons to let star defender John Souttar join Rangers now.

The 25-year-old is Ibrox-bound in the summer after agreeing a pre-contract with the Premiership champions on Friday. But Hearts remain hell-bent on keeping the Scotland international in Gorgie for the second half of the season, unless Rangers table a sizeable offer to get their man now.

Robbie Neilson's side are in pole position to finish third and that will tee them up for a lucrative shot at group stage football in Europe for the first time in over a decade.Hearts have recently signed key quartet Craig Gordon, Stephen Kingsley, Craig Halkett and Michael Smith to new Tynecastle deals.The Daily Mail report Gio van Bronckhorst will have to push the boat out to get Souttar now as he looks to solidify his rearguard with a jam-packed schedule looming.Connor Goldson only has six months remaining on his current Ibrox deal and both Leon Balogun and Filip Helander have been sidelined for spells this season.That has let Calvin Bassey prove his worth in the middle of the defence, however, van Bronckhorst is acutely aware of the need in that position.Hearts made clear their intentions on Friday night as they told supporters they will not be given the short shrift during pending talks with Rangers.A statement read: "Heart of Midlothian Football Club notes Rangers Football Club's announcement of John Souttar's pre-contract signing.'The club reiterates that John is an important member of the first-team squad and will remain so until the end of the season unless a significant and satisfactory offer is made during the January transfer window.

Net worth of richest tennis star is more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo combined
tennis player has a net worth more than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's combined, yet you've probably never even heard of him.Romanian Ion Tiriac, who hung up his racket in 1979, only made around £200,000 during his career.He won the French Open Doubles title in 1970 and reached the semi-final of Wimbledon that same year before fading into relative obscurity.Following his retirement from the game, the Romanian embarked on a coaching career and worked with the likes of compatriot Ilie Nastase and even a young Boris Becker.In the decades since, he's proved himself a savvy businessman and made a string of good investment decisions which saw him turn that cash into a fortune believed to be around £1.5 billion.In comparison, his wealth dwarves the combined net worth of Messi (£440 million) and Ronaldo (£368 million) who are two of the richest active sports stars on the planet.Towards the end of the Cold War, Tiriac took advantage of fading communism in his native Romania to become the first to open a privately-owned bank, and the Tiriac Bank has been a huge financial success.Under the company Tiriac Holdings Ltd, he has since branched out into retail, insurance and airline businesses and by 2007 had been named by Forbes as Romania's first billionaire.According to data compiled by Forbes, he's the third wealthiest man in sport, behind WWE owner Vince McMahon and NBA legend Michael Jordan.What's the first thing you'd buy if you had Ion Tiriac's fortune and why?

EuroMillions winners say dog was 'dream come true' to help disabled daughter

And along came Teddy."The TV star went on to explain why Teddy had been rescued, she wrote: "I have no idea why or how anyone could not want him or he wouldn't be 'good' enough."But apparently he is no where near the size he should be for his breed and that was one of the main reasons why he wasn't kept by the breeder."Stacey visited the pup on Sunday evening with her four children and fiancé Joe Swash before she later welcomed him home the next day.
