Forfar boss Dick Campbell has moved quickly to snap up Omar Kader after he left Alloa earlier this week.
Kader had spent four seasons with the Loons before leaving for the Indodrill Stadium in the summer.
However, the move did not work out for the 29-year-old who made just one start for the Wasps.
Now, he will return to Station Park with Campbell saying: “I am delighted to get Omar back.
“I never wanted him to leave but I am just glad he will be back playing in a Forfar jersey.
“In many ways, he is a unique player and he will bring something different for us.
“I have also recently brought in Lewis Allan from Hibs and Andy Black from Dundee.
“We certainly needed the reinforcements as we will once again be without the injured Gavin Swankie, Thomas O’Brien and Mark Baxter for the game with Dunfermline on Saturday.”
