League Two side Plymouth have completed the signing of Millwall defender Darren Purse on an initial loan deal until January.
The 34-year-old, who has spent the last month on loan at Yeovil, joins the Pilgrims until next year.
However, the former Birmingham centre-back is expected to make his move to Devon permanent in the new year with a contract until the summer of 2013.
Purse is set to make his Argyle debut in the League Two clash with Northampton at Home Park on Saturday.
Manager Carl Fletcher told the Plymouth Herald: "It's pleasing for us that Darren has signed. He's someone we've been after for a little while and we had to wait.
"There has been a lot of back and forth going on which we had to sort out. Darren will add a lot to our squad. If you are going to bring players in, they've got to give you something different."
