I love this place - Fielding

Frank Fielding says City’s forward momentum was one of the reasons behind signing a new deal at Ashton Gate.

The goalkeeper, 29, has agreed new terms until the summer of 2019, with a further year option also included.

Fielding joined the club from Derby County in 2013 and has amassed 150 appearances, declaring today: “I’ve fallen in love with the place.”

Speaking exclusively on BCTV after signing his new contract, Fielding said: “I’m obviously delighted to get it done. Talks had been going on for a few weeks, but I can concentrate on the football now.

“I was due to be out of contract in the summer, which always brings uncertainty, so it’s great that the Board, the head coach and all his staff have helped to get it done now.

“I’ve been here a long time – I’ve fallen in love with the place; my kids were born here.

“I’m happy with how the season has gone so far but you can always strive to do better. We’ll keep our feet on the ground because we know there’s still a long way to go.

“We’ve worked on a style of play and I’m part of that. The most important thing is winning games because performances take care of themselves.

“I feel like we’re going in the right direction and that’s obviously something I want to be part of, hence signing the new deal.”
