Halifax Town have signed experienced defender Steve Yates on a contract until the end of the season, reports BBC Radio Leeds.
Ex-Huddersfield defender Yates is back in West Yorkshire
The 35-year-old goes straight into Town's squad for Tuesday's Conference game at Burton Albion.
Yates helped Huddersfield to promotion in 2004, before deciding to retire at the end of the 2004/05 season.
However, he has returned to football and made one appearance for Scarborough earlier this month.
Yates has also played for Tranmere, QPR and Bristol Rovers.
