SIGNED: Sammie Szmodics

Recommended Posts

That’s two decent first teamer signings in the bag.

Four more to go, of which Kalas looks like one. 

 

I’ll end up loving MA unreservedly at this rate.

Trust the media team to **** the announcement, they had one job to link the article and they couldn't even do that. The tweet just read "welcome to #BristolCity!" with nothing else.

So it’s now official by being announced on the OS. At least we won’t be seeing anymore wild speculation as far as  Szmodics is concerned.

SZMODICS AGREES ROBINS SWITCH

 

City have signed Sammie Szmodics from Colchester United.

The central attacking midfielder has agreed to sign a three-year contract with a further 12-month option from July 1st.

Szmodics, 23, started his career at Colchester United having joined the U’s Academy.

He made his debut against Bristol City in September 2013 and he went on to score 37 goals from more than 150 competitive appearances.

His only spell away from the club came in 2015/16 when he went on loan at Braintree.

Szmodics was named Colchester United’s Young Player of the Year in the 2014/15 season and most recently finished the U’s top scorer in two successive seasons (2017/18, 2018/19).

City Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: “I am delighted we have acquired a really talented, attacking and creative player in Sammie Szmodics.

“We are confident this is the right environment for him, where under the guidance of our coaching staff, he will be able to step up. He is still a young player but he is learning all the time and has lots to give to Lee Johnson’s team.”

Bristol City have paid an undisclosed compensation fee to Colchester United as Szmodics is under the age of 24.

'JOHNSON A BIG INFLUENCE ON MY DECISION’ – SZMODICS

 

New City midfielder Sammie Szmodics has explained how Head Coach Lee Johnson was a major influence in his move to BS3.

Szmodics will complete his switch from Colchester United with the 23-year-old able to join the squad for their pre-season preparations.

He said it was a move he “couldn’t turn down” and is relishing the step up to the Sky Bet Championship, off the back of two successive season as Colchester’s top goalscorer.

Szmodics told bcfc.co.uk: “I can’t wait to get started! I’ve been in League One and League Two before, not the Championship but I can’t wait to show the Bristol City fans what they’ve signed and I can’t wait to get going.

“He (Johnson) was one of the main reasons I signed! There was talk with my agent, I had a number of phone calls with the gaffer and he was one of the main reasons I signed here.”

Szmodics made his U’s debut against City in September 2013, returning six years later to a transformed Ashton Gate Stadium.

“Fantastic” was how he described his new surroundings. “I made my debut here before the new stand was up. Having been shown around and walking out of the tunnel my first thought was how unbelievable the stadium is, it’s a big club and I’m excited to get going.

“I know how big the club is and it’s one of those where when the agent called, I couldn’t turn it down.”

The central attacking midfielder has agreed to sign a three-year contract with a further 12- month option from July 1st. Bristol City have paid an undisclosed compensation fee to Colchester United as Szmodics is under the age of 24.

Seems a sensible signing of the kind of creative goalscoring player we need. Look forward to seeing him play. Well done City.

Rejoice.

And polish your jack.

Bowls later? This is going to be the season:

We go up.

Me and the boy get our banner.

I declare my love for Ashton and Lansdown.

I stop talking to you about your bowls 😂

I noticed he deleted his twitter and made a new one, do you think this was maybe due to some naughty tweets in the past?

 

new twitter - https://twitter.com/SamSzmodics

Last summer, Bryan, Reid & Flint all had their twitters cleared before moving on!

Guess new clubs are worried about an Andre Gray type tweet popping up once they’ve signed.

Welcome to Bristol, Sammie!

I feel positive about this signing: he's described as attacking creative midfielder, so maybe he can give more unpredictability to our style of play in some matches.

Connery rang Roger Moore and suggested they meet up the next day.

Moore asked "what, about tennish?"

Connery replied " I haven't got my racquet with me"

Reaction of the ColU fans tells you all you need to know. Big step up but feel excited about this one. 

Have you got a link to anything? Would be interested to read what they have to say
