Hearts have concluded deals for four new signings.
Arriving at Tynecastle are Spanish midfielder Ruben Palazuelos, Lithuanian internationals Ricardas Beniusis and Andrius Ksanavicius, and Slovenia Matej Rapnik.
"I am delighted to have joined Hearts," said Palazuelos - who arrives from Spanish outfit Gimnastic.
"I was in Austria and Germany for the pre-season training camps and was impressed with the quality of the squad here.
"Hearts are a big club and I want to bring success to them."
Striker Beniusis and winger Ksanavicius both arrive on long-term loans from FBK Kaunas.
Youngster Rapnik, who has penned a two-year deal, will initially link-up with Hearts' academy squad, with the hope he can progress to the first-team.
