City complete Kilkenny swoop

Bristol City have completed a deal for out-of-contract Leeds midfielder Neil Kilkenny.

The 25-year-old has signed a three-year deal to become Keith Millen's third signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Yannick Bolasie and Ryan Taylor earlier this month.

City have fought off rival bids from a host of Championship clubs - including Hull and Nottingham Forest - for the Australian international's signature.

A delighted Millen told bcfc.co.uk: "We're delighted he has agreed to join us as we've been following him for a little while.

"We've beaten some strong competition to sign him and that's great for the club.

"He's a passing midfielder with a great range and he demands the ball.

"There aren't many creative midfielders available so the search has been difficult. The top players cost a lot of money but we've been fortunate in getting him on a free transfer.

"He's excited from speaking to him and he likes what he has heard about the club. He wants to help us get into the Premier League."


Kilkenny contributed 1 goal and 5 assists in 37 appearances for the Elland Road outfit last season.

Fellas, he is just a hardworking dependable very average player, like your old comfy slippers, sort of guy, he will run all day, but can't shoot, can't pass & we at Leeds are not sad to see him go, on the other hand wouldn't mind if he stayed, he is really just a good squad player no more. Believe me he won't be setting Ashton Gate alight

Listen chaps ... the guys got ability for sure. But he's lightweight and is very hit and miss with his performances. Like's to scream at team mates for making a mistake - as well as the ref (it's where most of his bookings come from), but tends to go all quiet when he falls short. Maybe a new club and a new challenge will see him set Ashton Gate alight...... (you'll think he's great for the first 3 or 4 games). then he'll revert to being an average squad player ...... Nowt against the lad, good luck to him - just not against us.

If you want a player who will stand in the middle of the pitch and pass it sideways then you have got your man. If you are looking for a ball winning midfielder who will chip in with a few goals then be prepared to be disappointed.

why did he choose Bristol city? he could have gone to a team more likely to challenge for promotion? Do we think bc are going to make a big leap in form from their 15th last season? I don't get it when he had (supposedly) nf interested? football hey!

Can't say he's ever impressed me when I've seen him before. His stats for last season speak for themselves. He's not the creative midfielder we've all been crying out for, that's for sure!

Thank god someone took him, he may have changed his mind and decided to stay, that would have been a diabolical. Can't pass forwards, doesn't tackle, can't shoot or head the ball, he's all yours
