City swoop for Everton's Walsh

City have completed the signing of Everton youngster Liam Walsh for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old midfielder has penned a two-and-a-half year contract after completing a medical at Ashton Gate.

Walsh will wear the number 12 shirt but signs too late to go into the squad for Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup tie at Watford. He will be eligible to make his debut at Manchester City on Tuesday.

Head coach Lee Johnson told bcfc.co.uk: “I think Liam gives us something slightly different to what we have already and adds to the qualities we already have in midfield.

“He loves getting on the ball and is a very good passer with both his left and right foot.

“He’s done very well on loan at Yeovil Town previously and I’ve tracked him for some time.

“He’s a brilliant player, who can come in and compete immediately. Hopefully he can improve and he improves us.”

An England youth international, Walsh spent last season on loan at Yeovil Town, where he played 17 times and scored once.

Earlier this season he spent time on loan at Birmingham City, where he made three appearances.

Walsh joined Everton’s youth setup at the age of five but is now looking forward to a new challenge in BS3.
