Webster enticed by City’s ambition

Adam Webster says his decision to switch Portman Road for Ashton Gate was relatively straightforward.

The ball-playing central defender has penned a four-year deal in BS3 for an undisclosed fee.

Webster is Lee Johnson’s second signing of the summer and the 23-year-old admitted the head coach’s desire and ambition instantly captured his attention.

“Since I’ve known about the club’s interest, it was always something I wanted to pursue and I can’t wait to get started,” he exclusively told BCTV.

“Speaking to the head coach and hearing the plans he has for the club, I wanted to come here straight away and I am pleased to get the deal over the line.

“The club is very ambitious and I would like to think I am as well, so I am excited.”

Former City players Cole Skuse, Dean Gerken and Jordan Spence are all playing their football at Ipswich Town and City’s latest recruit said he spoke to the trio when he heard of the club’s interest.

“I spoke to all three of them but they had nothing but positive things to say about the club and the city so it was a no-brainer,” Webster continued.

“Obviously it’s a difficult division, there’s not an easy game, so it will be important to get a good pre-season under my belt and crack on from there.

“As a defender I will first and foremost be looking to keep clean sheets but on the other hand I like to bring the ball out from the back and get the play started.

“I want to play every game and both the club and myself want to get promoted to the Premier League so hopefully we can achieve that.”
