Danns makes Robins loan move

Bristol City have signed out-of-favour Leicester midfielder Neil Danns on a one-month loan.

The 29-year-old former Crystal Palace midfielder has played just 24 minutes of Championship football and made two Capital One Cup appearances this season under Nigel Pearson and has spoken of his need for first-team football.

Manager Derek McInnes said: "I'm very pleased to be able to bring Neil to the club. He's hungry and determined to do well. He's a tenacious midfielder who brings experience and quality to our squad. Neil is desperate to play games for us, he brings another level of quality to our squad he can't wait to get going."

Danns joined the Foxes from Palace last summer having played over 100 times for the club since a 600,000 move from Birmingham in January 2008.

The deal is subject to Football League approval and will run until December 12, allowing him to play five games for the club up until the away fixture at Sheffield Wednesday on December 8.

Bristol City are four points from safety at the foot of the Championship and welcome Blackpool to Ashton Gate on Saturday.
