Bristol City have signed Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Danny Rose on loan for the rest of the season.

Rose, 20, joined Spurs for £1m in 2007 from Leeds and scored in his only Premier League game - against Arsenal.

City boss Keith Millen told BBC Radio Bristol it is a signing which should give him more options in midfield.

"He's one we feel would enhance the squad in terms of the position he plays and we've been looking for a left-sider for a while now," Millen said.

And Rose has revealed it was City's new assistant manager and England Under-21 coach Steve Wigley who had a large part to play in getting him to Ashton Gate.

"Wigs had a lot of input in me coming here," he said.

"I've known Wigs for about 18 months and he always looks after me when I go the Under-21s.

"On the last day he pulled me to one side and said he'd like to work with me and I'd like to work with him."

Rose's loan deal is until the end of the current campaign, but Spurs do have the right to recall him after the opening 28 days of the agreement.

Rose is unavailable for City's trip to Scunthorpe on Saturday because of a slight ankle injury, picked up playing for the England Under-21s, but is expected to be fit for their home game with Watford.

Meanwhile, City have confirmed that they have released Peter Styvar's contract with immediate effect.
