‘This club deserves to play in the Premier League’ - Palmer

Kasey Palmer is aiming to improve himself as a player and help the club reach the top tier of English football.

The attacking midfielder has agreed a four-year deal with the Robins, bringing an end to his young career at Chelsea.

Palmer returns to familiar surroundings, after winning the hearts of City supporters during a loan spell last season.

He is now looking to kick on in his career and has Premier League ambitions for his new club.

“I’m buzzing to be back on a long-term deal,” Palmer told the club website. “Hopefully my family and I will settle and then I can start to kick on with my football.

“The stability side of things will be important…it is so much better knowing this is my home over the next four years, instead of one year and then going back to Chelsea, so it’s a good platform and we can build on it.

“It gets complicated but now I am a Bristol City player and I can give my all for the club.

“In the next four years I want to develop myself as much as I can under the management of Lee Johnson. I want more goals, assists and to try and get my stats as good as possible. Also in that time the club can hopefully get promoted to the Premier League which is where it deserves to be.

“The manager was a big factor in my decision to come back. He was a big pull, my teammates played a part as well and my family wanted to come back which was a big thing for me as well.”

And the 22-year-old could be involved on Sunday against Leeds United, City’s opening match of the 2019/29 campaign.

“Games don’t get much bigger than that,” he said. “So hopefully I can be involved straight away, we can get off to a winning start which will be important.”

Palmer will now link-up with his City team-mates as preparations continue for Sunday’s televised 2019/20 Sky Bet Championship season opener with Leeds United (August 4th, 4.30pm KO).
