Velasco won four international caps, and was part of the Spanish squad for Euro 2000, after a career in Spain's La Liga which has seen him play more than 275 games for Sevilla, Celta Vigo, Athletico Madrid and Espanyol, who released him last year.

The move comes after City loan star Matthew Bates was forced to head back to parent club Middlesbrough last week after suffering a serious knee injury.
