Hamilton have completed the signing of Irish defender David van Zanten until the end of the season.
The 27-year-old full-back, who has been playing with Morton for the last two months, had a five-year spell with St Mirren between 2003 and 2008 before joining Hibernian for a season.
Van Zanten is cup tied and will not play a part in the Accies' Scottish Cup clash against Rangers on Sunday.
Manager Billy Reid said in the Daily Record: "David did really well with St Mirren but when he went to Hibs it didn't really work out for whatever reason.
"He's hungry to show people he is an SPL player but he has to earn the right to play."
