Walsall have solved their defensive problems by signing Aaron Brown on loan from Reading.
Brown joins the League One club until the end of the season to conclude Richard Money's search for a centre-half.
Saddlers boss Money had been eager to strengthen his back-line before the loan deadline as the club push for a play-off spot.
He has secured the services of Brown, who has yet to make a first-team appearance for Reading since joining the club from Tamworth in 2005.
Brown could be involved in Saturday's game with Southend United and Money is confident he will prove to be a useful acquisition.
"Aaron will give us the defensive options that we have needed for a while," Money told the club's official website.
"I'm looking forward to working with him in the coming weeks."
