Montpellier have completed the double signing of Rubin Kazan forward Hasan Kabze and Chile international Marco Estrada.
Turkey international Kabze has arrived for an undisclosed fee, signing a two-year contract.
He helped Rubin win the Russian title for the last two years, qualifying for last season's UEFA Champions League in the process, after previously playing for Bucaspor, Dardanelspor and Galatasaray in his homeland.
The 28-year-old, who has won seven caps for his country, scoring twice, has been handed the No.20 shirt and his arrival will be expected to help fill the void left by Victor Hugo Montano's departure to Rennes.
Estrada, who appeared in the World Cup in South Africa, has signed a three-year deal.
The versatile left-sided player, 27, has previously played for Chilean clubs Everton de Vina del Mar and Universidad de Chile and has won 24 caps, scoring his only international goal with a thunderous free-kick against Bolivia in qualifying for this summer's showpiece.
The arrival of the pair takes Montpellier's number of summer signings to four following the captures of defender Garry Bocaly and forward Olivier Giroud from Marseille and Tours, respectively.
