Hibernians FC set to sign Portuguese striker Hugo Vieira

Hibernians FC are expected to announce the signing of Portuguese striker Hugo Vieira, the times of Malta can confirm.

The Paolites have been scouring the market in search of a striker this month as they look to boost their attacking options ahead of the second part of the season.

Hibernians have identified the experienced Vieira as the perfect signing this month and opened talks with the 33-year-old forward.

Vieira has all but agreed personal terms with the Paolites and is set to put pen to paper on a deal until the end of the season.

The Portuguese forward enjoys a high-profile CV as he played with some of the best teams in Portugal throughout his career.

In fact, after starting his career with Santa Maria da Feira, Vieira went on to play with Benfica, SC Braga and Gil Vicente while he also had a short spell in Spain with Sporting Gijon.

In 2014, he moved to Russia where he played for Torpedo Moscow before heading to Serbia where he played for Red Star Belgrade.

The much-travelled forward then headed to the Far East when he signed for Japanese side Yokohama before returning to Europe where he joined Turkish side Sivasspor before returning home to Gil Vicente.

At the start of this season, he moved to Romanian top-flight Universitae Craiova but in the last few weeks he reached an agreement to rescind his contract and will now head to Malta to join Hibernians.
