New signing Marley Watkins says he is prepared to give it his all at City.
The forward becomes Lee Johnson's first signing of the summer, after completing a move from Norwich City.
The 27-year-old Wales international has his eyes on helping his new club reach new heights, with a shared ambition of reaching the top flight.
In his first interview with the club, Watkins said: "I’m really delighted with the move. It’s a massive club which is going in the right direction so it’s great to be a part of.
"I know there’s a great team spirit here and I’m looking forward to being a part of that. It’s good now to get some work in before everyone’s back and to impress.
"I want to be as ambitious as possible. This is a club which wants to be in the Premier League and it plays to a style which suits me. It’s faster paced, attacking and exciting which suits my style more. I’m looking forward to being a part of that."
Watkins links up with his new head coach Lee Johnson for a second time, after their days together at Barnsley.
He said Johnson played a big factor in his decision to swap Carrow Road for Ashton Gate.
Watkins said: "He’s undoubtedly a quality manager who knows my strengths and weaknesses. I’m delighted to be on board with him again.
"I want to work my heart out for the team, for the city, to chip in with assists and goals, be attacking and get in the box. If I need to do a selfless job and adapt for the team then I will. It’s all about the team and doing as well as possible."
Watkins arrives in BS3 for an undisclosed fee, after putting pen to paper on a three-year deal.
