Huddersfield Town have signed Leeds United centre-back Alex Bruce on loan until 2 January.
Bruce, who has been at Birmingham, Oldham, Sheffield Wednesday, Tranmere, Ipswich and Leicester, has not played a first-team game since February.
The 27-year-old has been capped by the Republic of Ireland but is now available for Northern Ireland.
"We think he'll add something a little different," Terriers boss Lee Clark told the club website.
"He is an inspirational player who is a leader."
