Kelly pens new City deal

Lloyd Kelly has signed a new three-year contract at Ashton Gate until the summer of 2021, with the option of a further year.

The 19-year-old – who has six caps for England Under-20s – hasn’t looked back since making his first-team bow in last season’s Carabao Cup first round victory over Plymouth Argyle.

“I’m delighted to extend my time at Bristol City,” the left-back told bcfc.co.uk. “We’re heading in the right direction as a club and I want to be a part of this exciting journey.

“I feel I’ve developed substantially over the past two seasons but of course I can still improve and offer more to the team.

“Having come through the Academy, this contract extension is extremely rewarding on a personal level, but huge credit must also be given to the people who helped me get here.”

Head coach Lee Johnson said: “It’s important we’ve locked down Lloyd.

“He’s a lovely character, exactly the type of character we want and it’s great to have an Academy graduate gaining recognition at Under-20 level for England.

“It becomes obvious that we are creating a path for Lloyd because Hordur Magnusson has now moved on, and part of that decision making was because we truly believe Lloyd can be a top, top player.

“I am looking forward to helping him nurture and give him the game time to undoubtedly add to the experience and quality he already has.”

Kelly has featured 14 times for his boyhood club, scoring once, and was named the Senior Reds’ Young Player of the Year at the 2017/18 end of season awards.
