Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager Terry Butcher says the arrival of three new players is “a timely boost” to the camp.
The Highlanders have added goalkeeper Antonio Reguero, David Raven and Jason Orwell to the squad, replacing players who have already left the club.
Jonny Hayes departed for Aberdeen earlier this week, joining last season’s top scorer Gregory Tade and keeper Jonny Tuffey in heading for the exit door.
However Butcher has started to rebuild and says more new arrivals are on the way.
He told the club’s official website: "They've all agreed to sign and the trio will be challenging for a first team place from day one.
"Their arrival is a timely boost and we are in advanced negotiations with a view to adding another couple of new recruits next week."
Reguero, 29, is perhaps the most high-profile arrival having played briefly for both Real Madrid and Villareal.
"He wants to play in Scotland and he came up and played a trial at the end of last season and we liked him and he liked Inverness", explained Butcher.
The former Motherwell boss described teenage striker Orwell as a player with great potential while 27-year-old full back Raven completes the set.
Capped at U20 and U23 level for England, the right back can also play in central defence.
