Partick Thistle have signed Belgian central defender Frederic Frans on a short-term contract.
The 25-year-old former Lierse player, capped at Under-20 level, has agreed a deal until January.
"It gives us some extra strength and depth in an area where we were probably still a bit light," manager Alan Archibald told the club website.
"He has experience playing in Belgium's top flight so clearly comes with a bit of pedigree."
Frans, who spent 10 days training with the Glasgow side, could feature in Saturday's squad for the trip to Dundee United.
