Elliott Bennett joins Bristol City on loan deal from Norwich

Norwich City winger Elliott Bennett has joined Championship strugglers Bristol City on loan.

Bennett, 26, will stay at Ashton Gate until Jan. 3, the Robins said on their official website.

He was signed for Norwich from Brighton by Paul Lambert in 2011, but has struggled to nail down a regular first-team spot and returned to Brighton on loan last season.

His only two appearances for the newly-promoted Canaries this term came in the Capital One Cup.

Bennett could make his debut for the Robins in next Friday's Championship clash with Nottingham Forest.
