Lincoln City have signed 21-year-old former Sheffield Wednesday trainee Todd Jordan on non-contract terms.
The defender has been playing further down the footballing pyramid and was most recently with Northern Counties East Division One side Shirebrook Town.
"He's joined on little money, so it's a gamble worth taking," Lincoln manager Gary Simpson told the club website.
"He can play in a number of positions and it's a chance for him to step up a level and stake a claim."
The signing is Simpson's third since becoming manager last month, following the capture of midfielders Nat Brown and Tony Diagne on loan from Macclesfield on Friday.
Jordan takes the squad number of recently departed club captain Gary Mills and goes straight into the squad for Wednesday night's game with Macclesfield.
