Official: Fulham secure deal for Bristol City’s Joe Bryan

Fulham have this evening officially announced the signing of Joe Bryan on a four-year deal from Bristol City. The fee is undisclosed.

‘Hopefully I can slot right in’

On signing for Bristol City, Bryan stated,

“Playing against Fulham the last couple of years, the style of play has really stood out to me and it will suit me.

“The opportunity to play in the Premier League is one you can’t turn down as you may never get it again in your lifetime.

“I’m used to playing fast attacking football, so hopefully I can slot right in.”

Tony Khan also commented upon Bryan signing for Fulham.

“I’m pleased to announce that Fulham Football Club has signed Joe Bryan. Joe is a gifted young player, and we have seen first hand that he is a fierce competitor in our recent clashes against Bristol City in the Championship.

“He’s a promising addition to the squad, and we are excited to welcome Joe to the club! Come on Fulham!”

Attacking full-back

Bryan did begin his career with his current club Bristol City. However, he has also enjoyed several loan spells throughout his career.

He spent a season on loan at Bath but only managed to make four appearances and Bryan also spent a season with Plymouth but he only made 10 appearances for them.

For his parent club, Bristol City, Bryan has made 229 appearances, in which he has scored 21 and assisted 29.

Bryan is also very versatile. He is naturally a left-back, a spot he has played 96 times throughout his career.

However, he can also play left midfield, right-back, right midfield and even centre mid on a few occasions.

Bryan had a solid 2017/18 season for Bristol City, in which he played 48 games, scored seven and assisted three.
