Ayr United have signed Jonathan Baillie on loan from Hibernian for the remainder of the season.
The 20-year-old defender has been unable to command a regular starting place in Tony Mowbray's side this season and has welcomed the move.
"I am delighted at the prospect of gaining experience of first team football," he told Ayr's website.
"(This) strengthens an area of the team where we have lacked cover so far this season," added manager Robert Connor.
"We hope to further strengthen the defence during the January registration window and are working on that right now.
"The type of player we are tracking is invariably attracting attention from other clubs so we are having to work aggressively to make things happen."
