Bristol Rovers have signed former Manchester City defender Adam Drury on a short-term deal, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.
Drury is a free agent after leaving City earlier this summer after eight years at the Etihad Stadium.
The 21-year-old joined City as a 12-year-old from Grimsby Town and progressed through the youth ranks, but failed to make a first-team appearance in City's star-studded team.
The highly-rated full-back had loan spells out at Burton Albion and St Mirren during his time at City and he impressed during those stints.
Drury had a trial at Leeds this summer following his release by City and featured in a pre-season game against York City.
However, Leeds decided not to pursue their interest in Drury and he was offered a trial at Bradford City, scoring in a friendly clash with Guiseley.
A number of clubs are thought to have shown an interest in Drury, but the defender has decided to join League Two Bristol Rovers on a short-term basis so that he can play regularly.
