"I think they are two good signings who will keep everybody at the club on their toes.

"Morais is the type of player that we don't really have at the club. He has real pace and I'm excited about seeing what he can do for us.

"I've played against Gatheussi once or twice and watched him on a couple of occasions.

"Thierry Gatheussi is competitive and has good energy and I'm looking forward to seeing how he does

"He hasn't really featured much at Hibs this season and I just thought he would be a good player to have.

"He is competitive and has good energy and I'm looking forward to seeing how he does."
