McCarthy has been scouring the market for defensive cover and he set his sights on Hoyte when learning he could be available on loan.
In order to seal the loan, McCarthy had to allow keeper Mart Poom to head in the opposite direction - but it is clearly a price worth paying.
"Justin is a very talented player, he's quick and can play anywhere in the back four," McCarthy told the club's website.
"He has some useful Premiership and Champions League experience and his versatility provides me with cover.
"I'm absolutely thrilled to have him on board."
Hoyte could be set for a baptism of fire, as he is in line to make his debut against Chelsea a week on Saturday.
