Crystal Palace have completed the loan signing of Clint Hill from Championship rivals Stoke City.
New Palace boss Neil Warnock has spent the past week trying to fix up a loan deal for Hill after allowing Leon Cort to move in the opposite direction.
Warnock made a fresh attempt to secure a deal for the defender after losing Lee Hills and Tony Craig to injury.
His persistence has now paid off after Hill signed a two-month loan contract in time to feature in Tuesday's Championship fixture against Cardiff City.
Hill had made five appearances for Stoke this season, with his last outing coming in the 3-1 win at Palace in October.
