Bournemouth have signed left-back Rhoys Wiggins from Sheffield Wednesday on a two-and-a-half-year deal.
The 28-year-old returns to the south coast club for a fourth time - having previously enjoyed two loan spells at Dean Court before signing a permanent deal in 2010.
The former Wales U21 international was then sold to Charlton the following season and went on to make 123 league appearances for the Addicks before signing for Wednesday last August.
Wiggins is Eddie Howe's fifth signing of the January transfer window, following the high profile arrivals of Benik Afobe, Juan Iturbe, Lewis Grabban and Marius Adamonis.
"I'm delighted. It's a great move for my family and for myself, so I'm delighted to get it done and I'm just looking forward to playing now," Wiggins told Sky Sports News HQ.
"I was just looking around [the ground] and didn't really recognise it, it's a big change and to be a part of it is good for me."
Wiggins was also excited about the prospect of working with Howe again.
"He first brought me down here, I was one of his first signings," said Wiggins.
"He's had a major part in my career and I'm looking forward to working with him again and hopefully he can get the best out of me now. "
Meanwhile, Bournemouth have allowed goalkeeper Ryan Allsop to join Wycombe on loan until the end of the season, while Baily Cargill will join Coventry, also on loan until the end of the current campaign.
