Bristol City striker Marcus Stewart has joined Yeovil on a three-month loan deal.

The 33-year-old veteran switched to Ashton Gate from Sunderland last summer but failed to impress.

He has not started a game for The Robins since February 14, and the club are eager for him to go to Yeovil and keep himself ticking over.

City, who had previously dismissed Stewart's link with The Glovers, intend to take the forward back at the end of November.

"The move is in everyone's interest," Bristol City chairman Steve Lansdown told the club's official website.

"It is not a transfer and nothing has been discussed beyond the three-month period.

"It will enable Marcus to play regular first team football at a time when he is not first choice here but also gives him the chance to show us what he can do."

The terms of the agreement do not allow Stewart to play against City when the two teams meet on November 4.

Yeovil have also unveiled defender Anthony Tonkin as their latest signing.

Tonkin began his career at Huish Park before leaving for Stockport and then Crewe.

After being released by The Railwaymen at the end of last season he had a trial with Colchester, but decided instead to return to Yeovil.
