Hibs have signed Estonian striker Henri Anier on loan until the end of the season as boss Alan Stubbs added both the Dundee United forward and Chelsea youngster Islam Feruz to his squad on transfer-deadline day.

Nineteen-year-old Feruz, who began his career with Celtic, has joined the Capital club on a season-long loan deal but Stubbs was determined to further strengthen his strikeforce and has turned to Anier.

Capped 22 times for his country, 24-year-old Anier joined United in January from German side Erzgebirge Aue having previously played in Scotland for Motherwell.

But he scored just once in 17 matches for the Tayside club and hadn’t featured at all this season.
