Callum O'Dowda signs new Bristol City contract
Congratulations to Callum who has signed a new contract at Bristol City, committing his future to the club for another 3 years.
The new deal comes off the back of a fantastic 18/19 season at Aston Gate, in which our man scored 4 and assisted a further 4 goals as City narrowly missed out on a play-off spot.
Callum is a wicked dribbler who relishes taking on his man in 1v1 battles and charging upfield on the counter. Possessing a wide array of tricks and maneuvers to outfox his opponents, he can get by them with stepovers, feints, shimmies, shoulder drops and more. In addition, our speedy 24-year-old’s also shown a solid first touch, great ball control (which importantly remains tight at high speed), a razor sharp turning circle and the ability to rapidly change pace or direction to unbalance his marker.
All of the above make it obvious to see why City have worked hard to tie the Republic of Ireland International down on a long term deal.
City Head Coach Lee Johnson commented: “Callum is an important member of the squad and it’s great news for his team-mates, staff and the supporters that he will be here for at least the next three seasons.
“He offers so much pace and trickery and he has developed his game since he first arrived here.
“Callum still has more to give and I’m glad that he has committed to this club as we want him to realise his undoubted potential. We are all delighted to continue working with someone who is a great human being as well as a highly talented footballer.”
O’Dowda added: “I’m delighted to have this new contract and I’m really excited about the ambition of the club and the future. I’m determined to carry on giving my all and contributing to what we are striving for, which is taking Bristol City into the Premier League.”
Well done Callum, be proud of your achievements so far, we are and we know there will be more to come in the future.
