Ricardo Vaz Te joins Hibs until the summer


Calderwood pleased with Vaz Te capture

Hibernian have completed the signing of former Bolton forward Ricardo Vaz Te until the end of the season.

The 24-year-old had been on trial with Hibs after being released by Panionios.

"Everything's completed now so we're delighted to announce he's confirmed as a Hibernian player," said Easter Road manager Colin Calderwood.

"He's missed a bit of football so there's a bit of fitness he's got to regain, but we'll stick him in the squad for tomorrow night."

The former Portugal U21 international, who can play wide or through the middle, left Bolton last summer after three injury-blighted seasons, agreeing a two-year contract with Panionios.

However, he became a free agent after struggling to command a regular place for the Athens club.

With the move to Leith now secured, Vaz Te could makes his debut against Hamilton on Tuesday.

"The reason to bring him in is to try and see what he can do - we'll try and push that as soon as possible," added Calderwood.

"It's an opportunity for him and ourselves to assess one another and see if we can have a fruitful end to the season.

"He's got good pace, good technical ability and has shown good shooting prowess in training."
