Brentford have signed Jonas Lossl on loan from FC Midtjylland for the remainder of the season.
The goalkeeper will be available for selection once he has received international clearance and there is the option to make the move permanent.
The 32-year-old, who won one cap for Denmark in 2016, had two loan spells at Huddersfield and also spent two years at Everton, but he failed to make an appearance at Goodison Park.
Brentford head coach Thomas Frank said Lossl, who has also played in France and Germany "fits the criteria" of what the Bees are looking for in a goalkeeper.
"Jonas is a very good goalkeeper who will bring with him lots of experience," the Brentford head coach said.
"He has played in England and in the Premier League and we also know him from his work with FCM (Midtjylland). He fits the criteria of what we want in a goalkeeper with his feet and in his penalty area.
"The most important thing is that he will add to the experience within our goalkeeper group in our first Premier League season. We have David Raya injured and Álvaro Fernández has missed some training recently.
"This gives us an extra experienced goalkeeper in training and also someone who has played Premier League games and will be used to that matchday environment if he starts a game for us."
