Ipswich Town have taken Arsenal's Daniel Karbassiyoon on a month-long loan.
Joe Royle has moved quickly to cover for the injured Drissa Diallo with the busy Christmas and New Year schedule looming.
Karbassiyoon is expected to go straight into the Town squad for tonight's top-of-the-table game against Coca-Cola Championship leaders Wigan at Portman Road.
The 20-year-old American, who joined the Gunners as a striker in August last year for a nominal fee from Roanoke, has since played in a number of positions for the reserves.
Karbassiyoon, who has represented the United States at Under-17 and Under-19 level, has made steady progress since being converted to a left back. He can also play in midfield.
He has played three times in the first team for Arsenal this season - all in the Carling Cup. He made his debut in the 2-1 win at Manchester City, scoring a last-gasp winner just eight minutes after coming on as a substitute.
