Aberdeen have completed the loan signing of Sheffield Wednesday's former Motherwell defender Mark Reynolds.
He provides cover for the berth about to be vacated by captain Ricky Foster, who will become Derek McInnes's first permanent signing at Bristol City.
Reynolds left Fir Park a year ago but worked with manager Craig Brown during his time there.
Subject to paperwork, he could go straight into the squad to face Forfar in the Scottish Cup on Saturday.
Aberdeen are also continuing to monitor the progress of free agent and former skipper Russell Anderson and, while both parties are keen on a deal, the 33-year-old is still some way from fitness. He will continue his rehabilitation at Pittodrie.
