Bristol City have signed Wales international striker Sam Vokes from Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers on a five-month loan.

The 20-year-old will go straight into the squad for the match against Millwall after injuries to Nicky Maynard and Danny Haynes.

"Sam's been a player who's been a thorn in the side of my old team Reading over the years," said boss Steve Coppell

"He's always looked a handful that's a good criteria."

Vokes signed for Wolves in 2008 on a four-year deal from Bournemouth.

He has made 41 league appearances in that time and found the net on six occasions.

The Hampshire-born forward also had a loan spell at Leeds last season where he made eight starts scoring his only goal against City's local rivals Bristol Rovers.
