El-Abd becomes a free agent

Adam El-Abd has departed Ashton Gate by mutual consent.

The defender joined Bristol City from Brighton & Hove Albion in January 2014 and still had 12 months remaining on a three-and-a-half-year deal.

But El-Abd, 31, has found opportunities hard to come by and has agreed a settlement package which will see him leave the club this summer.

The Egyptian international arrived in BS3 with a wealth of experience, having clocked up over 300 appearances and twice won promotion to the Championship in his time on the South Coast.

El-Abd was a regular starter in his first few weeks at the club with City battling for survival in League One, but found it tough to reclaim his place after receiving a red card in a vital win at Peterborough United in March.

He spent the majority of City’s 2014/15 double-winning campaign on loan at Bury, helping himself to another promotion in the process, while last season his first team action was shared between spells at Swindon Town and Gillingham.

The last of El-Abd’s 20 appearances in a City shirt came in November 2014 against AFC Wimbledon in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Everybody at Bristol City FC would like to thank Adam for his professionalism and wish him all the best in his future career.
