Motherwell have swooped to sign two players from the English Championship.
Manager Mark McGhee has agreed deals for Leicester midfielder Stephen Hughes and Crystal Palace striker Lewis Grabban.
Former Rangers man Hughes was actually born in Motherwell and he has agreed a two-year deal with the Fir Park club.
Grabban, meanwhile, arrives on loan until January.
"These were two of the boys I wanted when all this process started but as usual it's always the same, it takes to the last minute to get it done," said McGhee.
