Hibs have this afternoon confirmed the signing of Grasshopper striker Florian Kamberi.
The 22-year-old has signed a loan deal until the end of the season after impressing on a trial period at East Mains.
6ft 2in Kamberi is a Swiss U21 international, and has had a previous loan spell in Germany, as well as playing in his homeland.
Speaking to the official website, the new boy said:
“It’s a big club for me, a big opportunity and I am very excited to be here.
“The training ground is very impressive – I didn’t have that in Switzerland – and the team is strong. They play football, they don’t play the long ball all the time, and for me when I heard about Hibs I knew from the beginning it was a great opportunity for me.
“I am a physical striker, I’m not one to stay in the box. I want to go up against defenders and bring players into play.”
Hibs boss Neil Lennon added:
“I am pleased to have Flo in the door.
“He is not a monster but he is a big boy and he plays well with his back to goal. He has decent mobility and links the play well from what we have seen, and we have had a good look at him.
“I have been impressed by what he’s shown and he will bring a different dimension to the way we play.”
