Vyner commits future to Ashton Gate

Zak Vyner has put pen to paper on a new contract at Ashton Gate, tying him to the club until the summer of 2021.

The Academy graduate completed the formalities of his deal today, with the agreement also including the option of an additional year.

“I am delighted to sign a new deal with the club I have been at since the age of nine,” Vyner told bcfc.co.uk.

“The club has progressed in every aspect since I arrived and it’s great to be involved in its long term vision.

“My recent loan spells have been beneficial to my development and I am continually learning from my current teammates so I’m looking forward to my future at Bristol City.”

Head coach Lee Johnson commented: “Zak is an exciting Academy product and he has enhanced his reputation by going to Plymouth Argyle last season and playing a part in their success.

“He will certainly come in and compete for a first team place next season but he also has the potential to gain further experience by going on loan in the Championship or League One. We will look into all of the options and ensure we make the right decision for the player.

“It’s important he has signed the contract as it shows he is committed, and more importantly, we have committed to his pathway into the first team and I am really looking forward to watching him develop.”

Vyner was handed his City debut at MK Dons in 2016 and has since enjoyed loan moves to Accrington Stanley and Plymouth Argyle, respectively.

The 21-year-old shone during his temporary spell at Home Park last season, where he scored his first senior goal, helped the Pilgrims reach the League One play-offs, and received the club’s Young Player of the Year accolade.

Vyner has made a total of 13 appearances in City colours.
