Aston Villa completed a deal for Pepe Reina last night with the club announcing the move.
Reina joins Villa on loan until the rest of the season from AC Milan.
The Spaniard adds a veteran presence for a team battling against relegation.
Even at the age of 37, Reina could have a big impact.
His former Liverpool teammate Peter Crouch has reacted positively to Reina's move.
He backed Reina's character as well as his ability.

A great man and a great keeper
Getting in a new face, especially one of Reina's calibre, comes at a good time after Villa suffered a heavy defeat to Manchester City.
They can't afford to feel sorry for themselves after the 6-1 loss and Reina's arrival can give the team a lift.
Villa stopper Tom Heaton has been ruled out until the rest of the season, BBC Sport reported, part of a double blow which saw striker Wesley also injured.
One replacement is now sorted, and Villa's attentions can turn now towards bringing in a new striker.
