The 20-year-old returns to Whaddon Road, where he had a previous loan spell, and will stay the Gloucestershire-based outfit until the season's end.
Robins boss John Ward revealed how his side had to work against the clock to complete the paperwork for Wilson's return before Thursday's 5pm transfer deadline.
"It came about last minute because I'd already said to my players and the press at lunchtime that nothing was happening with us, in or out," Ward told Cheltenham's official website.
"At about 3:15, Stoke City phoned me and said there was a possibility we could sort something out.
"So it meant a lot of work in a short space of time and we managed to get the deal done with four minutes to spare.
"It's a loan with a view to a permanent deal. We've still got to do a medical and speak to Brian about personal terms but everyone is aware of that.
"I want to get that done in the next 24 to 48 hours."
