Hamilton have completed their second signing in 24 hours by bringing in former QPR defender Jamie Sendles-White.

The 21-year-old joins Brazil-born forward Alex D'Acol in signing for Accies ahead of the visit of Ladbrokes Premiership leaders Hearts on Saturday.

Sendles-White was released by QPR in the summer having failed to make a first-team appearance. He played eight times for Sky Bet League Two side Mansfield on loan last season.

Player-manager Martin Canning has now completed his work for the transfer window.

Canning wanted cover for the central defence given he has been struggling to overcome a calf problem and Michael Devlin could be out until November with an ankle injury.

D'Acol, 29, has arrived from AEK Athens on a one-year deal, like Sendles-White. D'Acol, who has an Italian passport, has spent most of his career in Greece after leaving Brazil more than 10 years ago.

Canning, whose side lost 2-1 to Raith in the League Cup on Tuesday night, said: "He will hopefully bring goals. He has a good goalscoring record in Greece and he can play as a number nine through the middle.

"He is also quite comfortable playing either side and in the number 10 role as well. He brings versatility and hopefully adds goals and quality to the top end of the pitch."
