City add Tanner to their ranks

George Tanner has completed a transfer to Ashton Gate for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old has agreed terms on a three-year deal from Carlisle United, with the option of a further 12 months.

Tanner, who predominantly operates at right-back, arrived at the Robins High Performance this morning to undergo his medical, meet his new teammates and staff, before conducting his media duties.  

On the signing, Nigel Pearson said: “When building a squad, it’s always important to have an eye on the future as well as the present. Signing George represents this point perfectly.

“Our Academy is excellent in producing players capable of making the progression to the first team arena preferably with us, but it is also important to look for players for the future from elsewhere too.

“George was a part of the Man Utd Academy, and he’s broken into the Carlisle United first team and there’s real promise for further development.”

Tanner joined Manchester United as a youngster and secured a place on their scholarship programme before signing his first professional contract with them in January 2018.

He has since had spells on loan at Morecambe and Salford before joining Carlisle United in August 2020 on a two-year deal.

Tanner made a total of 48 appearances for the Blues, scoring three goals.
