The 31-year-old returns to The County Ground just less than a year after joining The Swans from Swindon on a free transfer.
Gurney was then put on the transfer list by Swansea boss Kenny Jackett at the end of last season, despite having two years left on his contract with the South Wales outfit.
The former Bristol Rovers, Torquay United and Reading player will stay with Andy King's side until the end of the year - with a view to the deal becoming a permanent arrangement.
Meanwhile, Yeovil Town boss Gary Johnson has revealed that the Somerset club have rejected Swansea's initial offer for his son Lee Johnson.
The former Watford and Cambridge United player had been the subject of discussions between the clubs' two chairmen, Swansea's Huw Jenkins and Yeovil's John Fry.
Johnson stated his displeasure Jenkins' decision to go public with his interest for the Huish Park midfielder.
"Numbers were mentioned but were quite rightly turned down," Johnson told Yeovil's official website.
"Since that phone conversation, the Swansea chairman has chosen to go public with the story which has obviously alerted everybody, including Lee.
"Since then, there have been no further discussions, despite our chairman John Fry leaving messages for the Swansea chairman to contact him to clarify the situation."
