Bristol City have completed the season-long loan signing of Fulham striker Cauley Woodrow.

The 22-year-old joins for the duration of the 2017/18 season.

The England Under-21 international will be available to make his debut against Millwall at Ashton Gate.

Woodrow was signed by Fulham in 20011 and made his Premier League debut in March 2014 but last season found first-team chances limited, prompting a loan switch to Burton Albion in January.

Woodrow scored five times in 14 appearances for the Brewers and joined Tammy Abraham at the Under-21 European Championship in Poland during the summer, replacing the ex-City loanee in England’s 2-1 victory over Slovakia.

Speaking at today's Press Conference Cauley said he's been told by the manager there's the possibility of extending his stay at the end of the season.

As a player, he goes down as one of the United greats, a committed and talented full-back, and a member of some of the best sides to have graced Plainmoor in recent memory.
