Dundee United have confirmed Slovakian attacker Milos Lacny has sealed a year-long loan at the club from Sparta Prague.
The deal includes a first option to make the 23-year-old a permanent member of the Tannadice club’s squad.
Lacny had a trial period with Celtic in July 2011 before going on loan to Slovan Bratislava.
Manager Peter Houston told the club’s website: "Miloš is a quality young player. His style is different to the strikers we already have at the Club and I think he will quickly become a favourite with our fans.
"He showed a desire to come over here on trial and what I witnessed convinced me that he can play a big part in our squad and gives us greater attacking options.
"He will bring pace to our forward line and increases our goal threat. I am absolutely delighted to have secured his services for the next 12 months."
Chairman Stephen Thompson added: "We had to work hard to ensure this transfer went through. Once Peter decided he wanted to bring Miloš to the Club, it was imperative that we worked swiftly.
"Miloš is exactly the kind of player we are looking to bring to Tannadice. He is an excellent young player who knows he can progress his career by signing for Dundee United, whilst helping us achieve our aims on the pitch.
"This signing will show our fans that we are committed to ensuring the best possible team on the pitch."
