City swooped for two Premier League youngsters to beat today's emergency loan deadline.
West Ham winger Blair Turgott has joined until January 5 and Newcastle centre half Curtis Good up to January 2.
Both can feature in the squad for the trip to Bristol Rovers on Saturday, subject to Premier League approval.
Crucially for City, they are also clear to feature in the cup competitions.
England under-19 international Turgott, 18, has yet to make a senior appearance but has played ten times for the Hammers in the under-21s Premier League this season and scored twice.
He has been an England regular for the past three years through different age-groups, winning more than 25 caps and playing alongside Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling who recently made his debut for Roy Hodgson.
Aussie under-19 international Good, a left-footed central defender, joined Newcastle in the summer from Melbourne Heart after graduating from the Australian Institute of Sport.
