Peterborough striker Trevor Benjamin has joined League Two rivals Walsall on loan for the remainder of the season.
The burly forward recently ended an unproductive loan spell at Boston United and has now been farmed out by Posh once more.
Despite scoring nine goals this season - all before December - the arrivals of Aaron McLean and Craig Mackail-Smith have pushed Benjamin further down the pecking order at London Road.
Now promotion hopefuls Walsall have opted to take the 28-year-old on loan, making The Saddlers his 15th club and 11th loan spell of a nomadic career.
"Trevor hasn't been involved recently and I think for both him and Peterborough it's the right move," said Posh boss Darren Ferguson.
"He needs first-team football and this is a good opportunity for him."
Peterborough have also loaned defender Mark Arber to Conference side Dagenham & Redbridge for the rest of the season.
