Crystal Palace have concluded the signings of Hungarian international goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly and Southampton's Fitz Hall.
The former Hertha Berlin shot-stopper has been training with Palace for most of the summer, but now the South London outfit have concluded the deal.
"He's an international keeper who has played a huge amount of times for Hungary," said Palace boss Iain Dowie.
"He's a great athlete and very, very competent on crosses and a good shot-stopper. I wanted to bring in someone that is going to push for the number one spot.
"I want Gabor to push Julian Speroni very, very hard."
Kiraly joins fellow Hungarian Sandor Torghelle at Selhurst Park after the striker completed his move earlier this month.
Hall was also unveiled after he agreed personal terms and passed a medical on his £1.5 million move.
Dowie has moved for a player who he brought into the professional game during his time at Oldham.
"He is a good natural defender," added Dowie.
"He is a player that is going to develop and he is one of the best players I have ever worked with."
