Bristol Rovers have bolstered their defensive options with the loan signing of Daniel Jones from Wolves for an initial month.
Pirates boss Paul Trollope has already indicated he is keen to extend the full-back's stay at the Memorial Stadium and could be keen on a permanent deal in the summer.
Jones, who has enjoyed previous loan spells with Northampton, Oldham and Notts County, is out of contract at Molineux at the end of the season.
The 23-year-old had been tipped for a permanent move to the Magpies, but their off-field upheaval with changes in management and ownership saw him return to Wolves.
He has now agreed a deal with Rovers and could go straight into their squad for Monday night's clash with Charlton.
Trollope told the club's official website: "We are very pleased to welcome Daniel to the club as he's a player we have tracked and monitored for a long time.
"We've had a number of injury issues in the full-back positions over the last few weeks and we are pleased that we have been able to add him to the squad.
"He's a young player who brings all the attributes that we look for in that he's a good player, quite tall, has good pace and a very good left foot. In addition, he can pass it and get forward as well as undertaking his defensive duties.
"He's here for a month, initially, obviously with a view to extending it for longer and with him being out of contract in the summer maybe we can look at it for next year if all goes well.
"He's trained with us on Saturday and Sunday in preparation for the game against Charlton, which is a bonus for us, and he's fitted into the group well."
