Marius Cinikas claims to have penned a six-month deal with SPL outfit Hearts.
Reports had suggested that the Lithuanian midfielder had arrived at Tynecastle on a trial basis, alongside his FBK Kaunas team-mate Vygantas Zubavicius.
However, the 22-year-old insists he has signed a short-term contract with the Scottish club.
"I have signed for six months and if I do well, I could extend that contract," Cinikas said in the Daily Record.
"A week ago, I was told to prepare for the trip and a few days ago I received the plane tickets.
"All footballers want to progress, to play in a stronger league, a stronger team, so the move appealed to me."
Meanwhile, David Obua is determined to prove his worth to a sceptical Hearts fan base.
The Ugandan midfielder has endured a difficult start to life in Scotland since completing a summer switch from South African side Kaizer Chiefs.
He has found himself the target of terrace abuse of late, but maintains full faith in his ability to silence the boo-boys.
"I know the fans will love me," he said.
"Diego Maradona was booed once, Ronaldinho got booed at Barcelona and he was their top player.
"They don't boo because they hate you. Sometimes they're having a bad day and you are expected to bring them out of it."
