Video: Fredericks Excited By City Switch

Ryan Fredericks is hoping his career can lift off after joining Bristol City from Tottenham Hotspur.

The 22-year-old has penned a three-year contract and goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s season opener at Sheffield Wednesday.

Having come through the ranks at White Hart Lane, Fredericks has played the majority of his football on loan with Brentford, Millwall and Middlesbrough to date.

But in his first interview since signing permanently at Ashton Gate, Fredericks told Bristol City Player HD: “It’s hard to leave a club that you’ve been with for such a long time. However, I think it’s the right time to fly the nest and start my career properly.

“Hopefully it’s just the start of my career. I’ve already experienced the Championship with Millwall and Middlesbrough on loan; I know what the division is like and there are certainly no easy games.”

He added: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be joining the club. It’s been a long time coming but now I’ve got the contract signed I can’t wait to get started.

“Bristol City is going in the right direction. The club was on TV a lot last season and I’m aware of all the success the team enjoyed.

“I like the way the club plays football; open, attacking football. I like to think that will suit my style of play. I’m a right-back or right wing-back and always look to attack.

“I know I’ll have to fight for my place, I’m not just going to walk straight into the team. I hope I can add to the squad and force my way into the team.”
