Hearts have announced the signing of striker Evaldas Razulis from Lithuanian side Kaunas. The 24-year-old, 6ft 3in frontman will boost manager Jim Jefferies' attacking options, with Kevin Kyle currently out injured. Jefferies told the club's official website: "I had the chance to bring him here and I thought it was a good idea to have a look at him in case Kevin Kyle was to be out for any length of time. "We're hopeful Kevin will be fit for Hamilton if he doesn't make the game against Rangers, but Evaldas is a big, strong striker in a similar style to Kevin. "He's a bit short of match fitness at the moment but we'll get the chance to have a look at him over the next few weeks and he might be able to do us a turn." Meanwhile, Hearts goalkeeper Marian Kello has been called up by Slovakia for the first time following a fine season.
