Iwelumo, 31, has seen his chances limited in the Premier League after sustaining a metatarsal injury during pre-season, making just three starts and seven substitute appearances this term.

City boss Gary Johnson told his club's official website: "We're delighted to be able to bring Chris in. He will add vital experience to our strike-force and he'll provide a presence up top as well. We've managed to bring him here for a month initially and we'll take it from there."

Iwelumo, a Scotland international, was named in the side to face Sheffield United on Saturday.
