Hibernian have signed midfielder Vykintas Slivka from Serie A champions Juventus on a three-year deal.
Slivka, 22, will become Neil Lennon's seventh summer signing for the returning Scottish Premiership side, subject to international clearance.
The Lithuania international arrives at Easter Road for an undisclosed fee following five years at Juventus, where he did not make a first-team appearance for the Italian giants.
Slivka, who stands at 6ft 3in, recently got an introduction to British football when he played against Scotland and England in Lithuania's World Cup qualifying campaign.
"I am very happy to have signed for Hibernian," said Slivka. "This is another step in my career and I am really excited to be joining the club.
"The international matches against Scotland and England have given me a taste of the British style of football, and now I can't wait to get started.
"I am looking forward to meeting the squad and getting ready for the new season."
