Wednesday find themselves in League One following relegation to the English third tier last season.

Kamberi is the latest recruit in Darren Moore’s rebuilding job at Hillsborough.

The 26-year-old joined Hibs in 2018 on loan, impressing in a partnership with Jamie Maclaren. He scored nine goals in 14 games. He made the move permanent that summer making a further 70 appearances before moving to Rangers on a temporary switch.

The player infuriated the Easter Road support with comments made about the move to Ibrox

"Ever since I came to Scotland it has been a dream for me to move to Rangers and it has happened today, so I am a very, very happy man," he said.

"For me, Ibrox is the best atmosphere I have ever played in.

"My second game for Hibs was against Rangers at Ibrox and after the game, I told my agent immediately my dream would be to play in this stadium in front of these fans as they are the best fans in the world - the support is massive."

A permanent transfer to St Gallen followed but he failed to score for the Swiss side and returned to Scotland with a loan move to Aberdeen where he scored once in 14 appearances.

While Swiss-born, Kamberi was called up to the Albanian national team earlier this year for World Cup qualifying matches.
