Beni Baningime will soon reveal whether he will commit his future to Heart of Midlothian. 

The 25-year-old has been at Tynecastle since arriving from Everton on a three-year contract in 2021. 

He has since made 62 appearances and was offered a fresh deal to extend his stay beyond the current campaign. 

Baningime has carefully considered his options, and now the DR Congo-born midfielder has affirmed that he will reveal his decision within the next week or two, following Hearts' securing of third place.

"I have made my decision and very soon, everyone will know about it," he told Edinburgh Evening News

"I know where I am going to be playing next year. A reason it probably took so long to make a decision is because I need to speak with my family.

“I have had a talk with my family as a whole, together, with the gaffer and different people. Ultimately I have got enough information to make a decision now and you will have to wait and see. It’s going to be interesting.

“We probably didn't have the greatest start but we had a stretch where we won won so many games in a row and it shows how dominant we can be. Those sort of things do help as you are in a team where you know you are going to be playing Europe almost every single year. 

“It’s going to be harder next year because teams will come for you but I think we can improve and I think we will improve next season. It is the test of what Rangers and Celtic do all the time. 

“It’s doing well in the league and also trying to do well in Europe. That’s a tough ask but if we want to be that team, and I believe we can be, I think next season is going to be very exciting.”
