"With all our injuries, we had to do something on deadline day and both our chairman Eggert Magnusson and his number two Scott Duxbury worked ever so hard to bring two players in," Curbishley told whufc.com.
"I was welcoming the players to the Club at around 1:00 a.m. yet earlier, as midnight approached, we hadn't even been sure whether anything was going to happen.
"Then suddenly everything went through - we only signed Henri Camara with four minutes to spare - and we're delighted.
"Henri's always been a bit of a threat whenever he's played against us, while Nolberto Solano can play at right midfield or right-back.
"Although some of my signings are out injured, I've brought in players of the right age with proven quality and a bit of hunger. We're pleased with the business we've done and, hopefully, we can go on and have a decent season.
