Only John Sutton - who rejected a pay cut before sealing a return to Motherwell - has been made redundant from the playing staff since BDO took over the running of the club.
Danny Wilson, Kevin McHattie, Ryan Stevenson, Jamie MacDonald and Jamie Hamill all agreed to reduced salaries and administrators do not expect any further job cuts on the playing side. And they are reluctant to sanction any further departures after rejecting the advances of interested parties despite the club's current financial plight.
Joint administrator Trevor Birch told Hearts News: "We made a pledge at the start of this process that if the fans backed us by buying season tickets then we would endeavour not to sell any players to raise short-term cash.
"And, thanks to their incredible backing over the past fortnight, we have been able to keep the squad together for the forthcoming season despite attempts to sign our players. Given the small size of the squad and the registration embargo we hope that we can continue to rebuff further offers.
"The fans can be proud of their efforts so far but I have to stress that the momentum of season ticket and matchday sales has to continue to give us the best chance of saving the club and emerging from this situation as strongly as possible."
Hearts supporters are closing in on the 3,000-mark of extra season ticket sales, which they were challenged to reach in a two-week period ending on Friday. Supporters also raised £30,000 at a rally on Sunday and the Foundation of Hearts group has secured direct debits from 4,000 of the 6,000 fans who pledged money towards a takeover bid.
The Foundation launched "one final push" for pledges to be converted to cash ahead of the July 12 deadline for first offers. And the group's chairman Ian Murray, the Labour MP for Edinburgh South, believes BDO should take into account the money already ploughed into saving the club by fans when considering who to award preferred bidder status to.
He said: "The fans have been utterly phenomenal. They've not only come up with £1.7million just before Christmas last year to keep the club going; they've come up trumps again - 3,000 season tickets, fund-raising going on all over the country, online forums raising £30,000, fans rallies raising £35,000.
"I think it would be slightly disingenuous for the administrator to say 'Thank you very much indeed for all that but we're going to go down a separate route now.'"
