Leeds have completed the signing of veteran midfielder Michael Brown.
The 34-year-old was out of contract at Portsmouth and has moved to Elland Road on a one-year deal, with the option to extend for a further season.
Brown has 524 professional appearances to his name, and manager Simon Grayson pointed to his experience as being a key factor in bringing him to the club.
"We're delighted to finalise things with Michael," Grayson told the club's official website. "He is a player that I have long been interested in and I'm glad we've been able to sort things out for him to come here.
"He has experience and know-how, and he has played at the highest level. He fits the bill in terms of the quality of player I was looking to bring in and he will be a great addition to the squad."
Brown has met up with the Leeds squad at their Scottish training camp and could debut against Falkirk on Wednesday.
