Bristol City have completed the loan signing of Stoke City forward Peter Odemwingie for the remainder of the campaign.

The 34-year-old Nigerian international arrives in time to join up with the squad for Saturday's Championship match at Fulham.

I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring someone of Peter's quality in; he’ll provide us with experience and hopefully goals in one form or another.

– Lee Johnson, Head Coach

Odemwingie joined stoke in January 2014 and ended his first six-month period with five goals in 15 games but then missed the majority of 2014/15 due to a knee ligament injury.

After securing a further year’s contract in Staffordshire, Odemwingie has made eight appearances this season – albeit six of them from the substitutes bench.

He has been handed squad number 27 at City.

In the Championship, City suffered their second straight defeat after conceding a late goal at Wolves. But it's 3 wins in a row for the Rovers in League Two after beating Wimbledon 3-1.

Jermaine Easter, Ollie Clarke and Matty Taylor were on-target at the Memorial Stadium.

Bristol City sign Sunderland player on loan

Bristol City have signed a new player from Sunderland.

Right-back Adam Matthews will be signed on loan from Sunderland until the end of the season.

Matthews was in Bristol for training this morning, and is expected to be in the squad for the Robin's game at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old joins from Sunderland until May 8th.

The 12-cap Wales international began his career across the Severn Bridge at Cardiff City, going on to make 48 appearances - scoring one goal.

People may think ‘why do we need another right-back?’ It’s a number of things really. We’re in the market for good players and that’s what Adam is.

He’s quick with good technique. The risk and reward with any loan is how quickly you can get the player up to speed and get them integrated to the group.

Wes Burns on loan from Bristol City

Wes Burns has joined Sky Bet League One club Fleetwood Town on a youth loan from Bristol City.

He's made 17 appearances so far this season, scoring once – but most of these have come from the substitutes bench, and the loan will allow the 21-year-old to gain regular match action.

It will be great for Wes to go and get regular League One games for a good club that play football the right way.

I’m keen to get our homegrown players as much exposure to league football as possible, both in our first team and by utilising the loan system.

– Head coach Lee Johnson

Burns has previously spent time on loan at Forest Green Rovers, Oxford United and Cheltenham Town.

The youth loan runs until May 8th, with City having a recall option after 28 days.
