Aston Villa have signed Crystal Palace goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly on loan.
Kiraly has Premiership experience with Crystal Palace
The club were given special dispensation to make a move for the 30-year-old Hungarian international as their regular stoppers are injured.
Stuart Taylor, 26, has undergone surgery after injuring a knee in Monday's draw with Sheffield United and will miss the festive campaign.
And Thomas Sorensen, 30, is also out of action with a knee problem, leaving Robert Olejnik as the only fit option.

However, the 20-year-old has yet to make his Premiership debut.
Kiraly has only recently returned to Palace after spending a fortnight on loan with West Ham United in November, where he provided cover for the Hammers from the bench.
He will be included in the Villa squad for the weekend match against Bolton.
Taylor is understandably disappointed that his first extended run in the side has been ended by injury.
He told the Villa website: "I am absolutely gutted, there is no other word for it.
"I can't believe this has happened just as I was getting a run in the team.
"Thomas' injury meant I was getting a chance to prove myself for the first time - but it was obviously not meant to be.
"There is nothing I can do about it though. I just have to focus on getting back to full fitness then I can push Thomas for the shirt again."
