Kingston keen to stay on low wages

The midfielder is one of several big names whose contract is up in the summer and with the club looking to cut it's wage bill, he may have to extend his deal for less money.

"Honestly, I'm very happy here. I've already told the management that I'm waiting for them to put something on the table", Kingston said. "If they start talking to me and put something on the table, I'm happy.

"They have not talked to me yet so I don't have any idea about what to do if they cut the wages or if they will offer higher wages. We haven't talked about it yet."

Kingston had a tough time under former boss Laszlo Csaba but thinks the Hungarian painted him black unduly.

"He gave me a tough time. I know he has been saying Kingston is not committed to Hearts but that was wrong.

"Every time I got injured, people were thinking 'this is Kingston doing this'. That was because of what Csaba said.

"A lot of people only know one side of the story, they didn't know what was really happening."
