Yeovil Town have signed Bristol City full-back Joe Edwards on a one-month loan deal.

Edwards has already spent one loan spell at Huish Park, having made four League One appearances for the Glovers last season.

Manager Gary Johnson has this afternoon agreed a deal to bring back the 21-year-old, who goes straight into the Yeovil squad for tomorrow's home game against Sheffield United (3pm).

Robins manager Derek McInnes told the official Bristol City website: "We've let Joe go out on loan purely with his development in mind.

"He had a successful loan spell at Yeovil last season, so we're hopeful he can do the same again.

"He's trained hard of late and been playing well for the Under-21 development squad. But he hasn't been getting regular football with us in the first team, so playing in League 1 is ideal for him at this stage.

"We wish him all the best and hope he returns ready to break into our team."
