City pin hopes on defender as they welcome back former player

Bristol City are pinning their Championship hopes on a defender who began his career at the club a decade ago.

Scott Golbourne joins the club from Wolverhampton Wanderers, as they seek to add to their squad ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.

They've secured the signing of the Wolves left back for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old first joined City as a schoolboy, and was a product of the academy before he made his debut at the age of 17.

After a brief spell in the first team, left to join Reading ten years ago and has since had a host of stints at Exeter City, Barnsley and Wolves.

But now the Bristolian is now back at Ashton Gate.

A cousin of another former defender, Matthew Hill, Golbourne has penned a two-and-a-half-year contract after undergoing a medical at Failand.

Scott is a Bristol lad and that’s important to us.

He’s a left-back. At the moment we’ve either got Joe Bryan, who’s more of an attacking force, or Derrick Williams, who is more of a defensive type. It’s about getting that balance in between.

Scott has been here before, he’s athletic and someone we need for this football club.

Exeter City sign Reading midfielder

Exeter City have signed Reading midfielder Jake Taylor on a free transfer.

The 24-year-old returns to the Grecians following a loan spell with the club which lasted for the majority of the 2011/12 season.

The twice-capped Welsh international spent the first part of the season on loan at Scottish Premiership side Motherwell, but has now completed the permanent move to St James Park - bringing to an end to a seventeen-year spell with the Royals.

He is a player we know very well with him having spent a season with us on loan four or five years ago. It is a good opportunity to keep building the squad ahead of next year, and he will come straight into the squad for Saturday.

He is a very versatile player. He is a very bright player and he comes to us with good experience. He has been to quite a few clubs on loan; but obviously his major loan was with us, and I see it as it being a pretty smooth fit in terms of someone coming into the club.

He knows us and we know him, and he will add going forward into next season as we are building the team.
