Burton Albion have completed the double signing of Kevin Amankwaah and Jason Banton ahead of Saturday's game against Bradford City.
Amankwaah has joined Burton on a deal until January after being released by Swindon Town, while Banton arrives on a month's loan from Leicester City.
Centre-half Amankwaah played for the Brewers' reserves in midweek and is hoping to lend his experience to Paul Peschisolido's squad.
"I played a trial game here the other day and the manager was interested in me," Amankwaah told the club's official website.
"I like the set-up here, the lads are brilliant. I've got quite a few league games under my belt and played for a few teams in League One and Two, I've got quite a lot of experience in that respect."
Teenage winger Banton said: " I was more than happy when the gaffer at Leicester said I could go out on loan and get some experience.
"I can play either side, I'm here to do a job so wherever the gaffer wants to play me I'm happy."
