Grimsby have snapped up Bristol Rovers midfielder James Hunt on a month's loan.
The 30-year-old has signed in time to make his debut against Walsall on Monday night, live on Sky Sports 1.
Hunt was well down the pecking order at Rovers and has not played since October after reacting badly to being left out of the starting line-up against Mansfield.
Brentford had been linked with a move for Hunt, but Grimsby have stolen a march on their rivals by luring him to Blundell Park.
However, Anthony Pulis has been forced to cut short his loan stay at Grimsby after picking up a knee injury last week.
