The former County midfielder has joined from npower League Two side Northampton Town until 22nd December, meaning his final game will be away to Gateshead.
Turnbull joined the Hatters from the age of 11, joining the Centre of Excellence from local junior club Juno United and holds the distinct record of turning out for the club's youth, reserve and senior teams whilst still at school.
After making his youth team debut in November 2004 against Bury and his reserve debut in the Central League against Wrexham the following April he came on as a substitute against Wrexham at Edgeley Park in the last home game of the 2004/05 season to become the youngest ever player to represent the first club in a League game.
Turnbull scored his first senior County goal during a thrilling 3-1 Friday night win over local rivals Oldham Athletic in 2008 and made over 150 appearances for the Hatters, including a man-of-the-match performance in the 2007/08 League Two play-off final against Rochdale at Wembley.
He joined Northampton in May 2011, then returned to Edgeley Park on loan the following January, turning out fourteen more times in County colours.
County boss Jim Gannon said: "I've spoken to Paul, his agent and Aidy Boothroyd over the last couple of days and everybody thinks it would be in everybody's interest if Paul could come here and play. Given the hole in our midfield at the moment, which could do with somebody of his quality and character then I think it's a perfect time for Paul to come in."
