Bristol City have officially announced the signing of Ipswich Town defender Adam Webster on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee, a day after the Robins sold Aden Flint to Championship rivals Middlesbrough.
Webster made 28 appearances in England's second tier and contributed two assists during the 2017/18 season, picking up six yellow cards as the Blues finished 12th, 15 points off a play off spot.
He told the club's website:
“The club is very ambitious and I would like to think I am as well, so I am excited.”
Bristol City manager Lee Johnson added:
“He has proved himself as a top Championship defender and I look forward to seeing him play alongside our current centre halves.
“He comes with real quality on the ball and we believe we can be the vehicle for him to go to the very top, hopefully with us, Bristol City.”
