Bristol City have completed the signing of goalkeeper Tom Heaton on a one-year deal.



There is also the option of another season for the man who was once at Manchester United but has spent the last two season’s with the Welsh side, he has been looking for a club since he left the club in May.


The new man joined up with his new team mates for the tour of Spain although there was other clubs interested in his signature.


‘I met the manager and the goalkeeping coach at the end of last season and I took a shine to them,’ Heaton told BBC Radio Bristol.


‘It looked as if I was going to Watford for a time but from the moment I came through the door here it felt great.’


Along with Cardiff and United, Heaton has spent time with Swindon, Royal Antwerp, Cardiff, Queens Park Rangers, Rochdale and Wycombe on loan.


Now at Ashton Gate, the keeper will be challenging for a place in the starting line-ups with Dean Gerken.


Heaton added: ‘The desire to play is what drives me, I could have stayed at Cardiff but it’s not what I wanted to do.


‘I wanted to establish myself and hopefully I can do that here.’
