BRISTOL CITY SIGN CHELSEA MIDFIELDER PALMER ON LOAN


BRISTOL City have signed Chelsea attacking midfielder Kasey Palmer on loan until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old, a double-winning FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League winner, has spent the first half of the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Blackburn Rovers where he scored three goals in 17 appearances.

He has plenty of experience of Championship football, having helped Huddersfield Town win promotion to the Premier League in 2016/17. He has also had a spell at Derby Conty.

City head coach Johnson said: “I’m delighted we have been able to sign Kasey Palmer on loan from Chelsea until the end of the season and it’s great to get this done so early in the window.  Kasey is a very good player who can play through the middle and out wide; he can create openings as well as score goals and I’m excited about what he can bring to our squad.”
