Hearts have completed the signing of Kosovo international Donis Avdijaj.

He joins on a six-month deal following his departure from Turkish outfit Trabzonspor. He’ll aim to bolster a maroon frontline in need of some extra firepower.

The forward started his career at Schalke. He fired prolifically at youth level and did get promoted to the first-team, but was never able to make himself a regular at the Bundesliga club, making 12 appearances.

Avdijaj has been about Europe plying his trade outside of Germany too, taking in spells at SK Sturm Graz in Austria, Roda JC and Willem II in the Netherlands and Trabzonspor in Turkey.
