Bristol City have agreed the one-month emergency loan capture of Fulham defender Matthew Briggs.
The 21-year-old can operate at left-back, centre-back or on the left wing. But it will be at full back where Briggs will be challenging for a regular starting place during his month at Ashton Gate.
Richard Foster has switched across from his more orthodox right-back position to fill in recently, after Greg Cunningham and then Wolves loanee George Elokobi suffered long-term injuries.
Academy product Joe Bryan has also played at left-back but was required on the left-wing in midweek versus Burnley, in the same game that Liam Fontaine - another left-back stand-in option - tore a his calf muscle.
Briggs made his Fulham debut in 2007 at the age of just 16, making him the Premier League's youngest player of all time. So far he has made 22 appearances for the Cottagers.
The defender spent brief loan spells with Leyton Orient and Peterborough United. Briggs has also represented England at youth level from Under-16 to Under-21, with two caps for the latter.
The deal, which covers six matches, is subject to Football League approval. He has been handed squad number 29.
