Magnusson departs Ashton Gate

Hordur Magnusson has completed a move to CSKA Moscow for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old defender has put pen to paper with the Russian top-flight club, bringing to an end his two-year stay in BS3.

Head coach Lee Johnson said: "I would like to thank Hordur for everything he has done at the football club.

“It’s been a successful time for him. I think he’s improved as a player and he’s helped improve the team and our league position.

“He is a very well liked character in and around the changing room and he’s a willing student, who I will miss.

“I wish him all the best at CSKA Moscow, it’s a good opportunity for him as they are a club due to perform in the Champions League so it’s a step up in that regard, and I wish him well for the rest of the World Cup.”

Magnusson moved to Ashton Gate from Juventus in 2016 after featuring in the Iceland squad at Euro 2016.

He made 61 appearances in City colours and his solo goal came on his debut against Wigan Athletic.

Everyone at the club would like to wish Hordur all the best for his future endeavours.
