The Hearts manager, Jim Jefferies, yesterday completed the signings of his three-man foreign legion until the end of the season. The French goalkeeper Gilles Rousset, the Italian defender Pasquale Bruno and the Swedish striker, Hans Eskilsson, are preparing for their first Edinburgh derby tomorrow against Hibernian at Tynecastle.

Bruno, the former Juventus and Torino defender, has impressed in a three- match trial, and has accepted a contract to stay at Tynecastle until the end of the 1996/97 season. "I like Edinburgh and the Hearts fans have been very good to me since I came here," he said.

Hearts are likely to be without the Scotland defender Dave McPherson while Hibs have injury worries over the forwards Keith Wright and Kevin Harper, but Andy Millen could return after a knee injury for Alex Miller's side. Tomorrow is also derby day in Glasgow, with Celtic travelling to Ibrox to face the champions, Rangers.
