Quartet to leave Ashton Gate

Gary O’Neil, Luke Steele, Scott Golbourne and Arnold Garita will depart Ashton Gate at the conclusion of their contracts this summer.

O’Neil signed from Norwich City in 2016 and managed 36 appearances in City colours, netting once.

Steele, who returned to English football from Panathinaikos on transfer deadline day just under 12 months ago, has featured ten times this term, with his appearances equally split between cup competitions and Sky Bet Championship action.

Having joined Reading in 2006 after progressing through the club’s Academy system, Golbourne returned for a second spell in BS3 in 2016. The left-back went on to represent the Robins 40 times before spending the 2017/18 campaign on loan at MK Dons.

Meanwhile, Garita’s only first-team action came in City’s EFL Cup victory over Wycombe Wanderers during the 2016/17 season.

Speaking to bcfc.co.uk, head coach Lee Johnson said: “I would like to thank all the departing players for their effort and application throughout their time at the club.

“I wish them all the very best and hopefully we will see them at Ashton Gate in the future, supporting the club they used to play for.”

On-loan trio Cauley Woodrow (Fulham), Ryan Kent (Liverpool) and Loïs Diony (Saint-Etienne) have returned to their parent clubs.

City have already offered new contracts to six players from their Under-23 group, while four Under-18s have been offered their first professional deals.

All other first-team players remain under contract for the 2018/19 season.
