Hibernian snap up striker, new keeper for Hearts
Hibernian boss Pat Fenlon has signed Finland striker Shefki Kuqi on a one-year contract ahead of Saturday's match away to St Mirren in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
The 35-year-old becomes the eighth new arrival at Easter Road since the end of last season and moves north from Oldham Athletic. He began his career in Finland and has played for a host of clubs in England, including Blackburn, Crystal Palace, Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea.
Fenlon told the Hibernian website: "We pinpointed the forward department as an area that urgently needed strengthening, but it was crucial that we made the right signing.
"With Shefki, what you see is what you get - he is an old-fashioned target man, who can hold the ball up and get his head on the end of corners.
"He offers us something totally different to what we had before and his wealth of knowledge will not only help the team right away, but also help the development of our young strikers such as Ross Caldwell and Danny Handling.
"He is yet another strong-minded player and a good character, who will have a massive part to play for us this season."
Hearts have signed former St Johnstone keeper Peter Enckelman until January after Mark Ridgers was ruled out for the next few months with an injury picked up on Scotland U21 duty.
The 35-year-old Finn, previously with Aston Villa, said: "It's been a long summer in the wrong terms and I'm really excited to get back involved - coming to a club like Hearts is great."
