Weimann looking to kick on at Ashton Gate

Andreas Weimann is relishing the opportunity to showcase his talent in BS3.

The 26-year-old forward completed a move from Pride Park to Ashton Gate on a three-year contract earlier today (Tuesday, July 3rd), with the option of a further 12 months.

City’s fourth summer signing endured a “mixed time” at Derby County, so when Lee Johnson presented his plans for the Austrian, it was the perfect chance to start afresh.

“I have been looking forward to getting the deal done ever since I spoke to the head coach,” Weimann exclusively told BCTV.

“I’m excited to get going. It’s an exciting time for the club and from a personal point of view, the head coach said he wants to play me through the middle, which is where I always want to play.

“I am hoping I can come here and kick on, score a few goals and play as many games as I can. Hopefully I can also bring some experience with me as I’ve been around a few years now.

“I am a hard working player who always wants to help out his teammates and hopefully I can contribute to the team.”

Having suffered heartache in the Sky Bet Championship play-offs last season with the Rams – losing to eventual winners Fulham in the semi-finals – Weimann was quick to express his desire to reach the Premier League with his new club.

“Promotion was the target at Derby, but we didn’t achieve that,” he continued.

“I am coming here with the same target, I want to get back to the Premier League and I want to help this club do that.

“I will work hard for the team but my main strength is my movement. I like to make runs in behind, open defences up, and hopefully I can do that here.

“The stadium looks brilliant. I can’t wait to play in it and get the season started as it’s a very exciting time.”
