Hearts have signed the Czech strikers Roman Bednar and Michal Pospisil.

Bednar, 22, has signed a year-long loan deal from Kaunas, who have links to the Hearts board and have also loaned Edgaras Jankauskas to Hearts.

Pospisil, 26, joins from Slovan Liberec on a three-year deal and becomes manager George Burley's fourth signing.

"The Czech Republic boys are a top nation football wise and we are very pleased to be able to bring this type of player to the club," said Burley.

Bednar was with Mlada Boleslav last season but was signed by the Lithuanian side before being loaned to Hearts.

"Roman played in our friendly game against Middlesbrough and he had great awareness. His mobility surprised me because he is a big guy.

"I think they (Czech players) are used to the British style, it's a high-tempo game in the Czech Republic.

"It's not slow like it is in Spain and Germany, and Czech Republic lads are physically good athletes."

The Edinburgh club have also been linked with former Sochaux defender Ibrahim Tall and 26-year-old defender Michael Lamey.

Lamey has previously been loaned out by PSV Eindhoven to Alkmaar and Utrecht.
