Hibernian have signed goalkeeper Scott Bain from Dundee on loan until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old will provide competition for Ofir Marciano for the number one jersey at the club following the injury to Ross Laidlaw.
Bain, whose contract at Dundee expires in the summer, has been frozen out at Den Park after reportedly falling out with manager Neil McCann.
The Edinburgh-born keeper, who has previously earned a call-up to Gordon Strachan's Scotland squad for matches against Qatar and the Republic of Ireland in 2015, hasn't featured for Dundee since October 28.

Pete Graves is joined by Dharmesh Sheth and Kaveh Solhekol to discuss the futures of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil, Antoine Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho.
Bain could make his debut in the Edinburgh derby when his new side travel to Hearts in the Scottish Cup on January 21, live on Sky Sports.
"I am delighted to be joining up with Neil Lennon's squad," Bain said in a statement on Hibernian's official website.
"From the outside looking in the side have had a fantastic first half of the season, and I hope to help them build on that in 2018.
"It's a strong group of players and I am excited about meeting everyone in Portugal for the training camp. Hopefully I can hit the ground running and force my way into the manager's thoughts."
Hibs are fourth in the Scottish Premiership, five points behind Rangers in third, and resume league action after the winter break with a trip to Bain's parent-club Dundee on January 24.
