Arsenal have allowed Carl Jenkinson and Cohen Bramall to join Birmingham City on season-long loan deals.
Jenkinson did not feature for Arsenal in the Premier League last season, but played five times in the cup competitions.
The 25-year-old spent two seasons on loan at West Ham, although his second season at the club came to a premature end after he suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury.
Bramall joined Arsenal from non-league Hednesford last January and featured in the club's pre-season tour of Australia.
The 21-year-old is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Gunners and has been allowed to join the Sky Bet Championship club, along with Jenkinson, in order to gain experience.
Birmingham manager Harry Redknapp expressed his desire to add to his squad following the 2-1 Championship defeat to Burton on Friday.
"It was almost the same team which struggled to stay up last season and that is a big worry," Redknapp said.
"There is ambition in the club to get in some quality otherwise it is going to be another tough season."
