Norwich City veteran on the verge of signing for Bristol City

Gary O'NeilNorwich fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are saying their goodbyes to their experienced midfielder as his contract has now expired at Carrow Road.

According to talkSPORT, Bristol City are on the brink of landing Gary O’Neil after the Canaries chose not to retain him at the end of the season.

The 33-year-old was a key player in Alex Neil side last season, making 31 appearances, and plenty of punters thought he would certainly feature in some capacity for Norwich next season as they look to return to the Premier League.

But now that he is a free agent, Robins boss Lee Johnson is determined to land the former West Ham midfielder to use his experience to help carry his side to promotion from the Championship.

It is believed the midfielder has already completed a medical ahead of his move to Bristol City and if they can get this deal confirmed in the coming days it will be swift business from Johnson.
