Target Skuse Exits Bristol City
Thursday, 9th May 2013 11:09

Bristol City have confirmed that Town target Cole Skuse is leaving Ashton Gate this summer. The Blues are believed to have agreed a three-year deal with the 27-year-old.

The relegated Robins also announced the exit of former Blues striker Jon Stead in a statement on their website: “Whilst the club would like to keep hold of Jon Stead and Cole Skuse, they will both depart Ashton Gate this summer.

“Stead is aiming for a move back up north, while Skuse is likely to secure a deal in the Championship.”

Director of football Keith Burt says his club understand why Skuse, who has also been linked with Crystal Palace, has decided to move on: “With Cole, he’s been an exemplary servant for this football club and we fully understand his reasons for moving on at this time in his career.”

Skuse’s terms at Bristol City are officially up on June 30th at which point he will be able to formally put pen to paper elsewhere.

He's looking decidedly shifty in that photo.

Sign him up and bring Stead back whilst you're at it Mick. I always felt Stead had more to offer and was particularly good coming off the bench.

Looking like we'll be signing Skuse then. Can't say i've seen him play but a defensive midfielder sounds like a straight replacement in the squad for Drury. At 27 he's worth snapping up on a free. Hopefully there will be some news on Alan Judge soon, would really like us to sign him.

Happy to leave all these decisions to MM and TC.

I don't think Stead is a MM type of player.

Plus he spends more time on the treatment table these days

I liked Jon Stead, was another master Keane move getting rid of him!

Dont know a lot about the boy Skuse but no doubt we need strengthing in midfield.

There's a clip of him scoring a brilliant goal on Fifa 10 on YouTube!
