City Move Not A Difficult Decision - Engvall

New arrival Gustav Engvall says the opportunity to become a Bristol City player was too good to turn down.

The 20-year-old Swedish international put pen to paper on a three-year deal with a further year’s option on transfer deadline day.

The former IFK Gothenburg forward joined for an undisclosed fee to become Lee Johnson’s 12th signing of the window.

“It feels really good to be here,” Engvall told Bristol City Player HD.

“I heard of Bristol City’s interest only a few days ago and it was not a hard choice for me to come here. I am excited for this opportunity.

“I was talking to Lasse Vibe at Brentford, as we played together for a few years at Gothenburg. He’s a great guy and he said good things about this club and the league.

“When I was 15 I went on trial at Liverpool, and that was the time that I started to watch a lot of English football.

“It’s a great club with great fans, a good stadium and good players. The beginning of the season has been very positive and I’m looking forward to settling in.”

Engvall scored 16 goals in 43 starts in the Swedish top flight.

“I see myself as a striker who can also drop back and play as a number ten,” he added. “I’m quite fast with good shooting and I like finding opportunities to score.

“It’s a big difference from Gothenburg so the important thing for me is to settle in, meet the guys and see how the team works. Long term I just want to play as many games as I can in front of the Bristol City fans.

“I got a little injury a few weeks ago, but I can sprint again now and in another week’s time I hope to be at 100 per cent.”
