Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock has strengthened his squad following the double capture of John Oster and Leandre Griffit.
The pair have both signed short-term deals at Selhurst Park that keep them with the Championship outfit until January.
Experienced winger Oster impressed Warnock while on trial, while the former Sheffield United boss believes Griffit's approach to the game makes him a good addition to his squad.
"I think the squad is still a little thin on the ground and John gives us that little bit of experience especially away from home," Warnock told the club's official website.
"He keeps hold of the ball and looks to get past his marker and get crosses in so it gives us other options about where to play Sean Scannell and some of the other lads.
"With Leandre, he is a player that has been recommended to me and has just come to us until Christmas.
"He is a very positive lad. He likes to run at people, plays left, right or in behind the striker and just a good acquisition."
