Aden Flint: Keen to earn regular place in side

The centre-back made the short move from Swindon on Tuesday after drawn out negotiations with the newly-relegated Ashton Gate outside.

And he believes the size of his new club persuaded him to leave The County Ground.

"I know it's a massive club with ambitions to get back into the Championship and I'm looking forward to being a part of those plans," he told City's official website.

"I want to have a good pre-season and push my way into the team. Hopefully I can then kick on throughout the season and win the majority of the games to help the team.

"There are a couple of weeks until we come in for pre-season and I'm looking forward to it. I'll have to get into the gym now and keep ticking over until then - I'm looking forward to starting."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
