Former Hibs and Hearts striker James Keatings has signed for Inverness Caledonian Thistle on a two-year pre-contract deal from Hamilton Academical.  

The 27-year old spent 10 years with Celtic before signing for Hamilton Accies, helping them to promotion via the play-offs.

He then moved to Tynecastle and was a key player in Hearts Championship winning season, scoring 11 goals.

He then crossed the Edinburgh divide to sign for Hibs where he once again won the Championship and the Scottish Cup, coming on as a substitute for Jason Cummings before re-signing with Hamilton.

ICTFC Manager John Robertson said: “I’m delighted, he’s a vastly experienced quality player who scores and makes goals. He’ll be a huge asset to the club, we’re delighted as we’ve been tracking James for a while now and we’re delighted to get it over the line.” Keatings said: “Going over the past few seasons I’ve had a few injuries, I know John Robertson well from my time at Hearts and I’ve always kept in contact so I just felt this was the right move. “The club have massive games coming up, hopefully they can get through them and get into the Premiership. It’s a great time for the club, there is a buzz around it and I’m looking forward to getting started. I’m hoping to bring plenty goals, assists and experience.”
