De Girolamo Loaned To Cheltenham

Diego De Girolamo has joined Cheltenham Town on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 21-year-old makes the temporary switch to the Sky Bet League Two club to aid the Robins' survival bid.

The former Sheffield United winger goes into the Cheltenham squad for tomorrow's match away at Colchester United.

Head coach Lee Johnson said: “Diego has done extremely well with our Under-23s this season and has had a taste of first-team action.

“This loan gives him the chance to play regular league football and really test himself.”

De Girolamo’s City debut – and his only appearance to date – came in the 2-1 win at Scunthorpe United in the EFL Cup.

The attacker bagged a hat-trick in the club’s last Under-23 game against Cardiff City.
