Port Vale have signed former Wolves defender Daniel Jones following his release by Sheffield Wednesday.
Jones becomes Vale boss Micky Adams' fourth signing of the January window.
Adams has already brought in veteran duo Darren Purse and Lee Hughes, as well as bringing back midfielder Chris Birchall to the club.
The Rowley Regis-born 26-year-old, signed from Wolves in August 2010, went on to play 50 games in all competitions for the Owls.
The last of his 10 appearances this season came in the 1-0 defeat by Nottingham Forest in November.
Jones, who can play in a wide midfield role as well as at left-back, is available for an immediate debut for the leaders in Saturday's weather-threatened home game against Bradford City (19 January, 15:00 GMT).
