The 22-year-old, who can also play in midfield as well as right-back and centre-back, was out of contract at Huish Park but the Glovers will receive an undisclosed compensation fee from their local rivals due to the defender's age.

"Luke is a great signing for the football club," City boss Steve Cotterill told the club's official website. "He's another exciting young player and we've got him for an excellent fee.

"He was instrumental in the club's promotion from League One and did very well in the Championship last season, winning a raft of awards.

"He's a very versatile player and therefore offers us competition and cover in a variety of positions. We're working towards a smaller squad this season so we need that versatility."

Ayling added: "I spent four years at Yeovil but I think now is the right time for me to move on. I had a great opportunity to come to Bristol so I snapped their hand off really - I just can't wait to start playing and hopefully help take the club into the Championship."

In four seasons with the Glovers Ayling made 185 appearances.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
