Giles Coke has completed his move to Grimsby Town from Hereford.
The former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder’s move to the League Two side had been in doubt due to problems with his registration.
The deal, though, has now been confirmed until the end of the season.
Manager Paul Hurst told Grimsby’s website: “I’m really pleased, not just for ourselves but for the player as well. When I delivered the news last week that it looked like he couldn’t sign for us, you could see him get quite emotional really, angry, annoyed and disappointed, because in the few weeks we have had him here, he has worked incredibly hard, but also the extra sessions he was putting in to prove his desire and show the work he is willing to put in.”
