Birmingham City have signed Will Buckley on loan from Sunderland.
The winger's initial move to St Andrew's is until February 11, but the Blues are expected to extend it until the end of the season.
Buckley, 26, has trained with Gary Rowett's squad for most of this week and could make his debut in their Sky Bet Championship trip to Derby on Saturday.
He joins Birmingham after Demarai Gray was sold to Leicester for £3.75m and with David Cotterill sidelined for up to a month with a hamstring injury.
Buckley played four times on loan at Leeds earlier this season but has struggled to make an impact at Sunderland this term and has not played for the club since last May.
He has played 24 times for the Black Cats following a £2.5m move from Brighton in 2014.
