Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell has attempted to revive his side's faltering promotion push by snapping up Henri Camara.
The 32-year-old Senegal international striker was a free agent after being released by Wigan Athletic at the end of last season.
After signing Camara until the end of the campaign, Blackwell said: "At a time when we've got so many major players out through injury, he'll bring plenty of experience and a bit of quality to the squad.
"He's a proven goalscorer and, although he'll take a bit of time to get fit, he'll be able to give us cameo roles from the bench to begin with."
As well as spending four years with Wigan, Camara has also enjoyed loan spells with Celtic, Southampton, West Ham United and Stoke City since initially moving to England with Wolves in August 2003.
