Hibs swoop for ex-Bolton striker Vaz Te

Hibernian have confirmed that they have signed former Bolton forward Ricardo Vaz Te on a short-term deal from Greek side Panionios until the end of the season.

Vaz Te, 23, was rated as one of Portugal's hottest young prospects when he joined Bolton as a fresh-faced teenager in 2003, but he failed to live up to his potential at the Reebok Stadium, leaving the club in 2010 after a seven-year association.

After being released by Bolton last year he endured an unsuccessful spell in Greece, playing just eight games for Panionios and scoring once.

But the former Portugal Under-21 international now has the opportunity to prove himself with Hibs after becoming manager Colin Calderwood's seventh signing for the club.

"I'm pleased to have signed and now I want to help Hibs reach their targets, which is hopefully to get into the top six," Vaz Te said. "Obviously we would require a couple of wins in the next few weeks to do that but we are on a good run and I'm here to help and hopefully to have an influence on the team.

"I want to show that my injury problems are behind me and that I'm still a fresh, young, Portuguese talent, which is what they said about me when I went to Bolton.

"Hibs is a massive club. I always knew about them as a player and the problems they have had this season can happen in football - just look at Liverpool.

"But Hibs have bounced straight back, they didn't give up. They have a great set-up, there are a lot of strong characters at the club and the manager is a massive influence. They are only on the road to greatness and what has happened this season is just a bump on the road."

Vaz Te had been on trial with Hibs after negotiating his way out of a three-year contract with Panionios and will join the Easter Road club on an initial three-month deal, with a view to making it permanent should he impress.
