Caley Thistle’s Scottish Cup hero James Vincent is set to return to Inverness on a two-year deal.

Inverness boss John Robertson bolstered his squad for the coming season yesterday by signing Bulgarian attacker Nikolay Todorov and he is set to be joined by Vincent, who scored the winning goal in the club’s 2-1 Scottish Cup final win against Falkirk in 2015.

Vincent, who left Inverness in 2016, is a free agent after being released by the Dundee. He spent last season on loan at Dunfermline.

The 29-year-old joined Inverness from Kidderminster Harriers in 2013 and scored on his debut against St Mirren. Injury problems had restricted his appearances in a Caley Thistle shirt – he made 69 in three seasons – but cemented his status as a club hero with the goal at Hampden Park.

Along with Danny Williams, he left the Caley Jags for Dundee in 2016. However, after Paul Hartley left he struggled for game-time and spent the last 18 months on loan at the Pars.
