The 33-year-old is predominantly a left-back, but can play anywhere across the back line.

United boss Neil Warnock was delighted to complete the deal, telling the club's official website: "I've been looking to see if I can get one or two leaders in. Paul is a player who I have had my eye on for a couple of weeks - since I came in - but for whatever reason we just couldn't quite get it over the line.

"Now we've been able to do that I'm delighted. This is a great club for him and it gives us a chance to have a look at him with a view to next season."

The experienced defender has made over 500 career appearances since starting out as a trainee with Watford. He made almost 250 of those appearances for West Brom before joining Premier League Bolton in a £1m deal in January 2010 after impressing on loan.

He was a regular in the Bolton side up until the turn of the year. He has made 76 appearances for the Trotters and featured 20 times this season.

Meanwhile, Leeds goalkeeper Paul Rachubka has joined npower League One club Leyton Orient on a one-month loan deal.
