Mehdi Taouil has joined Kilmarnock until the end of the season
Taouil, 24, who has previously played for Montpellier and Nuremberg, has been brought in by Killie boss Jim Jefferies to combat injury problems.
The player has 25 caps for the Moroccan under 23s and has earned five full caps for his country.
Killie's new signing has been added to the squad for Saturday's SPL match against Falkirk at Falkirk Stadium.
Taouil spent two years at Montpellier before being released when his contract expired at the end of last season.
The French-born player made his debut as a teenager for Nancy before moving to German side Nurnberg for a two-year spell.
He takes the number 34 shirt in the Kilmarnock squad and could feature against Falkirk on Saturday.
