Vyner signs new deal

Versatile defender Zak Vyner has put pen to paper on a new three-year contract, with a one-year option, as the defender pledges his future to the club until 2023.

Vyner has been ever-present in Dean Holden’s defence this season, after earning his way back into the first team during last season’s restart.

The 23-year-old developed through the Academy system before making his City debut in a 2-0 Sky Bet Championship win over MK Dons in February 2016.

 

Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton, pictured with Vyner in front of City's new training ground, said: “Zak is another exemplary example of the homegrown talent here at Bristol City Football Club so I’m thrilled to see how far he has come. We’re all delighted for him and to see his dedication and hard work come to fruition.”

City Head Coach Holden added: “Zak has proven he can step up to this level with his attitude, commitment, desire and overall quality - it’s been a joy to watch his progress. He has played a key role in our positive start to the 2020/21 season and long may he continue to develop and fight as an integral member of this football club.”

Vyner, who can play either at right-back or centre-back, made four appearances in the second half of the 2015/16 season before his first loan experience at Accrington Stanley. He would spend the second half of the 2017/18 season on loan at Plymouth and despite his short time on the south coast, he was named the Pilgrims’ Young Player of the Year.

He was a regular member of Rotherham United’s 2018/19 side, before Vyner joined Aberdeen for the 2019/20 Scottish Premiership campaign.

Injury cut short his time north of the border and the defender was called back to help City’s final nine games of last term. In the current season, Vyner has played all 540 minutes from City’s six games across both the Championship and Carabao Cup, helping the Robins maintain four clean sheets and go unbeaten in the league.
