Shot-stopper joins League One side Bristol City.

Derby County goalkeeper Frank Fielding has joined League One side Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with Sean O’Driscoll’s men, after the Rams accepted a bid from the Robins last week.

Fielding initially joined the Rams on a temporary basis from Blackburn Rovers in 2010; making 16 appearances for the Club in two separate loan spells, before making the move permanent in May 2011.

He went on to make 60 appearances for the Rams, including 17 starts during the 2012/13 campaign, as he competed for a starting spot with fellow shot-stopper Adam Legzdins.

However, following the arrival of Burnley goalkeeper Lee Grant on a free transfer earlier this summer, manager Nigel Clough confirmed that he was prepared to allow both Fielding and Legzdins to find new clubs, with Grant set to be installed as the Rams’ number one.

Clough told dcfc.co.uk:“Frank leaves with our very best wishes. 


“The opportunity to sign Lee was too good to turn down, and combined with Frank’s desire to play first-team football, a place on the substitutes’ bench next season would have been difficult for him.


“However, he has been a great professional and shown an exemplary attitude on and off the training pitch."

Derby County would like to take this opportunity to thank Frank for his efforts and wish him well for the future.
