Dundee United have completed the signing of 32-year-old Japan keeper Eiji Kawashima until the end of the season.
He is due to link up with his Tannadice team-mates in the coming days, having been without a club since leaving Standard Liege in the summer.
Mixu Paatelainen told the club website: "I am delighted we have secured Eiji’s signature. It has taken a bit longer than any of us would have liked but this is a fantastic coup for the club.
“He is a seasoned professional who has played at major tournaments and this experience will help our young goalkeepers. He is a strong character who has shown great desire to play for Dundee United and I look forward to working with him.”
