Toulouse have signed Colombia international Abel Aguilar on a three-year deal from Hercules.
The defensive midfielder moves to the Stadium Municipal from the Spanish Segunda Division side, having spent last season on loan at Deportivo La Coruna.
Aguilar has joined the Ligue 1 club for an undisclosed fee and is likely to fill the void left by Etienne Capoue, who signed for Tottenham last week.
“Toulouse Football Club is delighted to welcome, from Hercules Alicante, Abel Enrique Aguilar Tapia,” a statement on Toulouse’s official website read.
“The player will wear the number 21 this season in Ligue 1.”
Toulouse boss Alain Casanova’s also secured the services of Paris Saint-Germain’s Clement Chantome on loan this week.
The club are currently 19th in Ligue 1 after taking just one point from their opening two games, and face high-flying Monaco on Friday.
