Inverness Caledonian Thistle have completed the signing of Estonia forward Tarmo Kink until the end of the season.

Kink, 29, has played for Middlesbrough, Spartak Moscow and most recently Hungarian club Kaposvari Rakoczi.

"He's been with us for a few days and impressed us," said Inverness manger John Hughes last week. "He can play anywhere in the front four."

The Highlanders sold top scorer Billy Mckay to Wigan earlier this year.

Edward Ofere, a 28-year-old striker who left Sogndal after their relegation from Norway's top league, started in Saturday's 2-1 defeat by Motherwell having signed the previous day.

Striker Prince Rajcomar, previously of VVV Venlo in the Netherlands, had been on trial with Caley Thistle, but the 29-year-old Dutchman joined Tero Sasana in the Thai Premier League.

Serbian striker Marko Vukanovic, a 25-year-old last with Swiss club Baulmes, was also looking to impress Hughes and win a contract.

Kink started his career in his homeland with Real Tallinn before switching to Spartak Moscow.

Having failed to become a first-team regular in Moscow, he returned home to Levadia Tallinn before heading to Hungary with Gyori.

Kink had his first taste of British football in 2010 when he moved to Middlesbrough and went on to score four goals in 24 appearances, mainly from the bench, for the Championship side.

His contract having been terminated in February 2012, he joined Karpaty Lviv in Ukraine then moved to Varese in Italy's Serie B and spent time on loan with Gyori before signing for Kaposvari last year.
