Aberdeen have completed the signing of midfielder Killian Phillips on loan from Crystal Palace.
The 21-year-old moves from the English Premier League squad on a deal until the end of the season and will look to help the Dons climb the table.
Phillips spent the first half of the season on loan at Wycombe Wanderers, where he made 30 appearances.
The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has only made one appearance for Palace but also had a successful loan spell at Shrewsbury Town last season.
“I’m pleased to bring Killian to the club as he’s a player we’ve admired for some time”, said manager Barry Robson.
“He’s energetic, hardworking and his strength of character is matched by his technical ability.
“He’s proven this season already that he’s capable given the number of games he has amassed. He’s put in some big performances, including a man of the match display, scoring for Ireland U21’s against Italy.
“He’s very good in both boxes and will add a real versatility to our midfield options.
“He has the right mentality to fit into our squad and we look forward to working with him in the second half of the season.”
Phillips will be available to face Dundee in Tuesday night’s Premiership match.
