Smith signs new contract

Korey Smith has put pen to paper on a new contract to keep him at Ashton Gate until the summer of 2020.

The 27-year-old, who is continuing his return to fitness following knee surgery, is delighted to extend his stay in BS3 and itching to be back in action.

"I am really happy to sign a new deal at Bristol City,” he exclusively told bcfc.co.uk. “I have enjoyed every moment of my time at the club and it was an easy decision.

“I’ve made some great memories during my time here and I hope to create many more in the next few years.

“Bristol is home for me and my family, both my children were born here and we love it. The fans have always been behind me so I want to continue to repay them and the club for their faith and support.

“I am working hard every day on my rehabilitation and I hope to be back on the pitch as soon as possible, helping the team achieve further success.”

Head coach Lee Johnson said: “Korey is an integral member of our squad, a leader on and off the pitch, and we are delighted that he has signed a new contract. He is recovering well and we are looking forward to getting him back playing for us.”

Since joining from Oldham Athletic in 2014 Smith has made 171 appearances in City colours, scoring five times.
