Szmodics agrees Robins switch

City have signed Sammie Szmodics from Colchester United.

The central attacking midfielder has agreed to sign a three-year contract with a further 12-month option from July 1st.

Szmodics, 23, started his career at Colchester United having joined the U’s Academy.

He made his debut against Bristol City in September 2013 and he went on to score 37 goals from more than 150 competitive appearances.

His only spell away from the club came in 2015/16 when he went on loan at Braintree.

Szmodics was named Colchester United’s Young Player of the Year in the 2014/15 season and most recently finished the U’s top scorer in two successive seasons (2017/18, 2018/19).

City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “I am delighted we have acquired a really talented, attacking and creative player in Sammie Szmodics.

“We are confident this is the right environment for him, where under the guidance of our coaching staff, he will be able to step up. He is still a young player but he is learning all the time and has lots to give to Lee Johnson’s team.”

Bristol City have paid an undisclosed compensation fee to Colchester United as Szmodics is under the age of 24.
