Bristol City Use GIF To Announce Departure of Long-Serving Left-Back Joe Bryan

Bristol City Use GIF To Announce Departure of Long-Serving Left-Back Joe Bryan

It's common knowledge that Bristol City's GIF game is very strong but their tweet announcing the departure of one of their most popular players has not gone down well.

Left-back Joe Bryan, scorer of the stunning opener in the thrilling League Cup win over Manchester United, has made the step-up to the Premier League by signing for Fulham in a late switch.

Bryan was very close to joining Aston Villa, beaten by Fulham in the play-off final at Wembley, but elected to join the Cottagers and get a taste of the Premier League.

"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," he told Fulham's official website.

"I'm used to playing fast attacking football, so hopefully I can slot right in."
