Hibs sign Vaz Te


Recommended Posts


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."

I think thats a decent signing if he can stay fit

They've made a few good signings recently. Palsson looks to be a great find, and Sodje and Vaz Te could get them goals.

Recalling Booth as well recently as helped. Played well in 2-0 for us at ER, looks to have a promising future.

After looking at Denneboom as well, it's nice to see them showing a bit of ambition.

Aye, it's important the other SPL clubs outwith the old firm improve, that's the only way this league can be anything other than a joke. And to do that they need to sign good players.

Read in the paper today that he had a promising debut, Hibs have him til the end of the season but certainly one the management team should keep an eye on if he rekindles the form that saw him called up to Portugal U21s
