Yeovil Town have signed Championship duo Shaun MacDonald and Aleksander Prijovic on month-long loan deals.

MacDonald arrives at Huish Park from Swansea City, while Serbian striker Prijovic has been brought in from Derby County.

Midfielder MacDonald has made six appearances for Swansea this season and is eager to grasp his chance with Yeovil.

"The move came out of the blue to be honest,'' MacDonald told Swansea's official website.

Desperate

"I have been nagging the gaffer (Roberto Martinez) to go out on loan for the last few weeks because I was desperate to get some game time under my belt.

"He spoke to me in training last night and said that Yeovil manager Russell Slade had asked if I would be interested in a loan spell there.

"I know there were a few other clubs interested, but I know Yeovil is a good club and at this stage of my career I need to be playing."

Prijovic has yet to make a senior appearance since joining Derby last summer, and both players could feature for Yeovil against Huddersfield on Tuesday night.
