Coventry Bees have signed Mateusz Szczepaniak amid news that Kenni Larsen has left.
The Dane's average was too high so the Bees have brought in the 25 year old brother of Michael, who was ridden for Poole and Kings Lynn and still have one spot to fill.
Bees Promoter Mick Horton told the Bees website: "We wanted to bring in a rider around the high-4s or low-5s average to leave us enough to get a decent third heat-leader in, and I narrowed that down to a couple of options.
“There were a couple of other Elite League clubs interested in Mateusz, but I put an offer in and after a day of negotiations he’s coming and I’m delighted.
“It’s going to help Mateusz that his brother is here already. Michal is pretty dialled-in at Coventry and obviously with KK (Krzysztof Kasprzak) here as well they’ll all be talking, and it will help us all.
“What I do like is that with Adam (Roynon) and Aaron (Summers) around, two of those four will be at reserve, and so now I’m confident at the top and bottom end and now we need the third heat-leader to finish the team.”
