George Elokobi: Joining Bristol City on a three-month loan from Wolves
Bristol City have signed defender George Elokobi on loan from Championship rivals Wolves.
Elokobi has moved to Ashton Gate on a three-month emergency loan after finding himself down the pecking order at Molineux.
Robins boss Derek McInnes has brought in Elokobi to provide cover for the injured Greg Cunningham at left-back and he believes the Cameroonian will be a valuable addition to his squad.
"George relishes a battle and I've gleaned a lot of enthuasism from our coversations," McInnes told the club's official website.
"He can play at left-back or centre-half, so he can bring a lot to the team and improve our squad options.
"We've fought off a lot of competition from other Championship clubs to secure his signature, and I believe that shows the perception of Bristol City is changing out there.
"The move works for all parties because we get an excellent player with vital Championship experience, and George gets game time under his belt."
