Chris Wood has joined Bristol City on loan from West Brom until the end of the season.

The New Zealand striker, who has struggled to force his way into Baggies manager Roy Hodgson's first-team plans at the Hawthorns, has already spent most of the term out on loan with Birmingham.

The 20-year-old netted 10 times in 28 appearances for the Blues during his stay at St Andrew's.

Robins boss Derek McInnes told City's official website: "Chris is someone I've been aware of for a while and I tried to sign him at St Johnstone. I'm delighted we've been able to add him to our squad."

He added: "He's a big lad with good feet and he's already shown himself to be a proven goalscorer in the Championship.

"I'm sure he will prove a valuable addition to the squad.

"I've seen him play a number of times, he's young, hungry and I'm sure he will enjoy his time with us."
