Jason Koumas and Darren Purse will make their Cardiff City debuts against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
The players left Albion for South Wales this week - Koumas on loan, Purse on a permanent deal - and will have an early chance to show their former manager, Bryan Robson, that they are still of Premiership standard.
Dave Jones, the Cardiff City manager, could barely conceal his delight at signing two Premiership players. Jones has also signed Kevin Cooper, the winger, from his old club Wolves.
"We have got Koumas, Purse, and Cooper in and I want one or two more," Jones said. "I now have 18 or 19 players that you can say are first-team quality. You couldn't have said that two weeks ago."
Robson has not ruled out switching Zoltan Gera from the right of midfield to a position as a striker.
Robson said: "Zoltan knows what's needed to be a wide right-midfield player, where I see him in the main. Having said that, if we're not getting enough goals through the middle, I think Zoltan gives me another option there.
"I think he could score goals as a centre-forward and it's good to have a player of that calibre. He plays just off the front two for Hungary.
"That's why it took him time to get used to the role
we wanted him to play."
Gera, aged 26, scored six Premiership goals last season and played a significant role in helping Albion avoid relegation.
"The English game is far quicker than the Hungarian league so he had to take all that on board," Robson said. "But he's a lad who wants to improve and he can improve again.
"He's a great trainer and that's why I can see Zoltan being even better for us next season."
