Palmer’s pledge to City fans

In his first interview as a Bristol City player, Kasey Palmer says he wants to bring a piece of the puzzle to help the club’s play-off aspirations.

The attacking midfielder has joined from Chelsea on a loan deal until the end of the season, after spending the first half of the campaign at Blackburn Rovers where he scored three goals in 17 appearances.

Palmer, 22, arrives in BS3 with City on a nine-game unbeaten run and within touching distance of the play-off places.

He said: “My preferred position is playing centrally behind the striker, in an attacking role and hopefully create and score goals to help the team go and reach the play-offs.

“We’re nine unbeaten at the minute, five points off the play-offs so hopefully I can get as many games as possible to help the team with goals, assists, play well and add something.”

Palmer comes with a wealth of experience in the Sky Bet Championship and he helped Huddersfield Town reach the Premier League in the 2016/17 season.

He becomes the third loanee from Chelsea this season, as he links up with Jay Dasilva and Tomas Kalas.

“I spoke to Jay when making the decision. He told me it was a great club to be at and it’s the right club for me,” Palmer continued.

“My first impressions are all good. I’ve walked around the stadium, got a feel for the place, I’ve met the staff and I’m raring to go. Hopefully I can repay the trust that the head coach has shown in me.

“The first day is always difficult, getting to know everyone but hopefully I can get down to business quickly, train with the boys and get to know everyone and hopefully produce the goods on the pitch.”

Palmer will wear the number 45 shirt and is eligible to play against Bolton Wanderers this weekend.
