|Hibs may have lost the services of Anthony Stokes and Liam Fontaine but they have a new face in the squad. Florian Kamberi has signed on loan from Grasshopper until the end of the season, subject to international clearance of course. Kamberi has been training with the first team squad over the last two weeks and has impressed manager Neil Lennon with his ability and attitude. The 6ft 2in Swiss centre forward started his career at Grasshopper, and enjoyed a loan spell at Karlsruher SC in the German Bundesliga 2 last season.
Kamberi 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."
Lennon said: "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."
