Championship promotion challengers West Brom have snapped up Steven Reid on loan from Blackburn Rovers.
The 28-year-old midfielder has seen injuries hamper his hopes of breaking into Sam Allardyce's first team this season.
He has already spent time on loan at Queens Park Rangers this season and a number of clubs had shown an interest in taking him again.
But West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo has moved to take him on loan for an initial month.
"Steven is an exciting player and I'm delighted to welcome him to the club," he said.
"We have been looking to strengthen our squad for the final push and Steven certainly fits the bill. He's a versatile player with loads of experience.
"We've had some great references about Steven, so hopefully he'll perform at the level we expect him to."
Morrison wants role
Meanwhile, Baggies' own midfielder James Morrison is hoping he can make an impact on West Brom's promotion bid.
"I want to make a contribution this season. I don't just want to get onto the pitch to get a cheer," said Morrison.
"I was pleased to do something. A lot of the new players haven't seen me play, so I feel like I've got something to prove. A lot of them asked who I was when I came back!
"But, from having a decent season last year, I want to progress. I would like to start games now, but I know I have to be sensible and appreciate I may need to come on when I can for now.
"In a few weeks I'd like to start, although it won't be easy because the lads in the team are playing well."
