Ipswich Town have signed Czech goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny on a one-month contract.
The former Fulham custodian joins the East Anglian club after a successful trial at Portman Road this week.
The 27-year-old will be available for Sunday's home game with Luton Town, with keeper Lewis Price sidelined with a fractured rib injury.
Drobny was linked with a move to Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kiev, but he has opted to stay in English football with Jim Magilton's side.
"I went back to Greece and trained with Panionios and then my agent called and said that Ipswich were short of a goalkeeper," Drobny told the club's official website.
"I have trained with the first team this week and the manager has asked me to stay for a month, which I am delighted to do.
"Ipswich has a fantastic stadium and fantastic training facilities, so it's a good chance for me.
"I'm only here for a month, but I have been made to feel very welcome and if I do well here then perhaps there maybe a chance to stay longer."
