"Nikolay was born on August 24 1996 in Pleven in Bulgaria.  He came to the UK in 2014 when he joined Nottingham Forest from the Bulgarian club Cherno More Varna (the Black Sea club are nicknamed 'the Sailors').  

"He was sent out on loan to Worcester City and Hemel Hempstead by Forest and then moved to Hearts at the start of this season.  Nikolay is a hard-working striker with good aerial ability and it is a pleasure to welcome him now to Central Park.  

"We thank Hearts for their assistance which is much appreciated by Cowdenbeath FC.  With registration formalities now being processed, Nikolay may make his debut for us tonight at Arbroath."
