Full Contact client Kieran Agard has today completed a transfer from Rotherham United to Bristol City.
Kieran, pictured here with Bristol City manager Steve Cotterill and Full Contact’s Lee Payne, has put pen to paper on a three year contract after Rotherham and Bristol City agreed an undisclosed transfer fee.
Kieran scored 21 goals in League One last season, often playing in a wide role, and it was this prolific contribution that persuaded promotion chasing Bristol City to try and make the transfer happen.
Full Contact’s head of football agency team Lee Payne explained “There has obviously been a lot of interest in Kieran since the end of last season, whether that be from Rotherham extending his contract or from other clubs. It was well publicised that Rotherham had agreed a fee with another club previously but Kieran had no desire to leave where he was unless all of the circumstances were right for him. When Bristol City agreed a fee, and permission was given to hold talks, Kieran and we were soon mightily impressed by the passion and ambition that Steve Cotterill has, and the whole set up of the club is geared up for a promising future. Kieran has come here for footballing reasons, he wants to advance his career to the next stage as a striker who scores a lot of goals and at Bristol City we think he’s found the right home to do just that.”
Kieran will be allocated squad number 19, and subject to the successful registration of the transfer in time, will be eligible to feature in Bristol City’s away game to Rochdale on Saturday.
We wish Kieran and Bristol City all the best for the 2014/2015 season.
