The 20-year-old joins the club on an initial one-month youth loan, up to and including Saturday 1 March. Huws is the second youngster from the Etihad that Lee Clark has recruited during the January transfer window, following the addition of Albert Rusnak last week.
Huws, who hails from Llanelli, began his footballing career as a youngster with Swansea City, with whom he spent five years before being snapped up by City in 2009.
During his time with the Barclays Premier League club, he has captained City's U21 squad having spent a period out on loan with Sky Bet League Two side Northampton Town earlier last season, where he made ten appearances for the Cobblers.
He made his senior bow for his parent club earlier this month as a substitute against Blackburn Rovers in an FA Cup with Budweiser third-round replay victory.
