Maurice Ross has joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on a three-month loan deal from Sheffield Wednesday, with an option for a permanent move.
The defender, aged 24, has been on trial at Molineux since last week and took part in a behind-closed-doors friendly yesterday.
Ross made only two appearances since signing for Wednesday in August from Rangers and has struggled to dislodge Frankie Simek from the right-back slot.
Paul Sturrock, the Wednesday manager, said: "Maurice feels he should be playing first-team football but I can't promise him that."
The Scotland international will remain at Molineux until January 25, providing valuable right-back cover for Jackie McNamara. Wednesday have received an undisclosed loan fee for the deal.
Wolves signed Tom Huddlestone, the Spurs midfield player, on a month's loan on Tuesday.
Jody Craddock has signed a new deal that will keep him with Wolves until the end of the 2007-08 season.
The former Sunderland defender has been sidelined for the most part this season because of a calf injury but he remains an integral part of Glenn Hoddle's squad.
Craddock's previous contract was due to expire at the end of this season, although the club did have a one-year option.
Hoddle said: "We have been negotiating for some time and we are delighted that the contract is now signed. Jody brings us the strength in depth we need at the club."
Craddock, who joined Wolves from Sunderland for £1.2 million the summer of 2003, said: "I'm delighted to be committing myself to the club for a further two years."
There was also good news for Carl Cort. The striker underwent surgery for a knee injury on Tuesday but the damage is minimal.
Cort did have some debris in the joint, which was cleaned up by the surgeon, but fears that the injury could have been more complicated were allayed. He has nine goals this season but missed Saturday's match against Preston because of swelling in the knee.
"Obviously it's disappointing for Carl to be out, but we are all pleased that the news from the specialist is better than we thought it might be," Hoddle said.
"He will need a couple of weeks to rehabilitate and then we will see where we go to get him fully fit for us again."
