Bristol City announce Retained List

Bristol City today announced its Retained List following the conclusion of the 2020/21 Sky Bet Championship season. 

City would like to thank the following 11 players who have been released following the end of their contracts: Hakeeb Adelakun, Nathan Baker, Famara Diédhiou, Rene Gilmartin, Jack Hunt, Henri Lansbury, Adrian Mariappa, Jamie Paterson, Tommy Rowe, Liam Walsh, Marley Watkins.

Discussions with Danny Simpson and Andreas Weimann are ongoing to extend their stays at the club.      

City Manager Nigel Pearson said: “I have spoken with each departing player and wish them all well in the next stage of their careers.

“We are entering into a significant transition period for the club and central to that is deciding which players can take this club forward. The first element of that is largely done and now it’s about looking forward to who we can bring in as we build towards next season.”

City would also like to thank Steven Sessegnon for his service while on loan and he will now return to parent club Fulham.
