Wagstaff Departs Ashton Gate

Scott Wagstaff is to leave Ashton Gate for pastures new this summer.

The 26-year-old is out of contract with Bristol City and a decision on his future was originally postponed for a fortnight.

Head coach Lee Johnson has since spoken to the midfielder again, culminating in Wagstaff moving on.

“I had a good conversation with Waggy about next season,” Johnson told bcfc.co.uk. “He feels that he’s enjoyed it at Bristol City.

“I felt I would find it difficult to promise him the number of games he wants at this stage of his career. I understand he needs that.

“After that open and honest conversation, we really came to the same conclusion.

“He’s a lovely lad and I didn’t really want to lose him because he’s great around the dressing room – the lads love him.

“He’ll get a club; I’ve already had managers on the phone from League One and League Two clubs and I’m sure there will be interest from the Championship too.

“I want to thank him, on behalf of the club, for being such a great servant during his time here.”

Wagstaff joined City in the summer of 2013 after his release from Charlton Athletic, and went on to make 90 appearances for the club, scoring nine times.
