"I'm happy to have finally completed my move here. Though, there were little delays but I'm happy it worked out. To God be the glory," Oshaniwa told Goal.

"The move is special for me because it is a step forward in my career. As you know, this is football and it is all about movement and that's what has happened for me by God's grace.

"It is a great feeling here. I'm excited with the calibre of coaches here and the great fans of Hearts. Everyone here was welcoming and the atmosphere is awesome.

"The team has great goals. I'm looking forward to contributing my own quota for Hearts. I want to give my best to reward the club for signing me," he concluded.
