Dundee United have loaned out injury-plagued defender Lee Wilkie to first division Ross County.
The former Scotland international has made just one appearance for the SPL side this season after suffering a series of knee injuries.
Craig Levein, who was appointed Tannadice manager in October, immediately made the 26-year-old available for loan in a bid to regain match fitness.
"Lee needs regular first-team football and that's why he's gone up to Ross County," said Levein.
"It would be for a month's loan deal but I obviously would not want him cup-tied."
