Weimann becomes a Robin

City have completed the signing of Andreas Weimann from Derby County for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old forward has agreed terms on a three-year contract at Ashton Gate, with the option of a further 12 months.

Weimann has more than 100 games of Premier League experience and becomes the club’s fourth signing of the summer window.

City head coach Lee Johnson said: “We are delighted Andreas is joining us and I am excited to work with him.

“He is a really good player with good experience. His work rate is second to none and he is someone who will add knowhow to our group.

“We are bringing him in primarily as a striker, who can also play wide if necessary, and I am confident his attributes will enhance the squad and our team.

“With our system and shape, I believe he can be a goalscorer that can blend in with the other four senior strikers we have on our books.”

Signed by Aston Villa at the age of 16 from Rapid Vienna, Weimann successfully progressed through the club’s ranks and was handed his full league debut in 2010.

The pacey forward then went on loan to Watford in 2011 before returning to Villa Park, where he became a regular.

After eight years with the Midlands club, the Austrian took the decision to join nearby Derby County.

Following his first campaign with the Rams, appearances were restricted in the 2016/17 season, which triggered a temporary move to Wolves.

Upon his return to Pride Park last season, Weimann made 43 appearances, predominantly in a wide position, where he scored five goals.
