Leeds United have signed Liverpool goalkeeper David Martin on loan and completed a deal for Cardiff City full-back Tony Capaldi.
Martin has recently undertaken a month-long stint at Tranmere Rovers and has now joined Leeds until the New Year.
Whites boss Simon Grayson has moved to bring in Martin to provide competition for Casper Ankergren while Shane Higgs recovers from injury.
"David has plenty of experience for a young goalkeeper and he comes in at important time," Grayson told the club's official website.
"It's a busy period and it's important we have the goalkeepers here who can step in."
Grayson has also finalised a loan deal for Capaldi, with skysports.com having revealed the Northern Ireland international was on his way to Elland Road.
"Tony is a good experienced left-sided player," added Grayson
"He's a left-back, and with Hughesy picking up an injury on Tuesday, we are a little bit light in that area so Tony gives us a boost. He can also play on the left in midfield so there's options there.
"Again, he will provide us with some good quality competition at a busy time of the year which is what I was looking for."
