Bristol City snare playmaker signing

Next Story

Bristol City have completed the signing of midfielder Yannick Bolasie from Plymouth.

The 22-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the Robins and boss Keith Millen is delighted to have secured his services.


"When I heard he was available, I was really excited," Millen told the Bristol Evening Post. "I saw it as a fantastic opportunity for us to bring in a really exciting player for a snip."

He added: "Players like Bolasie don't become available at that price very often and it was simply too good an opportunity to turn down.

"There have been a few delays in the deal over the past week but, now that I'm back, I hope to get things tied up quickly."

Bolasie joined Plymouth in the summer of 2008 after spending a year with Maltese side Floriana and had loan spells at Rushden and Barnet before becoming a regular for Peter Reid's Argyle this season, making 38 appearances and scoring seven goals.
