Bristol City have confirmed the signing of Kasey Palmer on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season.
Palmer spent the first half of the season at Blackburn but was recalled earlier this month after starting just 10 of their 26 Championship matches.
The 22-year-old becomes the third player to join on loan from Chelsea this season following Jay Dasilva and Tomas Kalas.
Manager Johnson will be hoping Palmer can use his experience of winning promotion to the Premier League with Huddersfield in 2017 to aid City's play-off push.
Johnson told the club's website: "I'm delighted we have been able to sign Kasey Palmer on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season and it's great to get this done so early in the window.
"Kasey is a very good player who can play through the middle and out wide; he can create openings as well as score goals and I'm excited about what he can bring to our squad.
"We've got 20 scheduled league games left, plus the FA Cup, and Kasey will be able to help us continue the momentum we have built."
Palmer, who is yet to make his debut for Chelsea, also spent the second half of last season on loan with Derby.
He will wear the number 45 shirt and is in contention to face Bolton on Saturday at Ashton Gate.
