Fenlon to swoop for former Bohemians player?

New Hibs boss Pat Fenlon has today been linked with his first signing at the club.

Lithuanian international winger Mindaugas Kalonas is said to be on the radar of Fenlon, who had the player with him at Bohemians.

Kalonas, 27, has played for a number of clubs in his career, including Rubin Kazan, Dinamo Moscow and FK Riga.

While at Bohemians he won both the League of Ireland Championship and the FAI Cup.

He is well thought of at Bohs, after nettted the winner against bitter rivals Shamrock Rovers in the 2008 FAI Cup Final.

He has also won the Latvian League and Cup, as well as the Baltic League, which is a tournament where 5 teams from every Baltic State (Estonia, Lithuania & Latvia) take part.

Kalonas currently plays for FC Metalurh Zaporizhya, in the Ukranian league, and it's not clear how much of a fee would be involved to get him to Easter Road.

He has also been capped 33 times for his country.
