Bristol City confirm new player agreement

Published

on

Bristol City defender Duncan Idenhen has penned a new two-year contract extension with the club.

The 19-year old made his debut for The Robins in April in a 3-1 win over Derby County.

Idenhen has celebrated that moment by agreeing a deal with the club to keep him at Ashton Gate until June 2024.

The youngster made the start of his career at Norwich City before joining Lincoln City and Grimsby Town.

Bristol City’s academy director Brian Tinnion spotted the defender at Grimsby, signing him to a six-month deal last January having been impressed by his performances there.

Idenhen played nine times for the U23 side before making his debut against the Rams, coming off the bench in the final 20 minutes of the game at Pride Park.

The former Norwich player has spoken of his delight at the decision, claiming he is already ahead of where he expected to be with the club when he arrived at the turn of the year.

“I love it here, it’s probably one of the best cities I’ve been to, which does help with your football because if you’re enjoying yourself off the pitch, it helps you on the pitch,” said Idenhen, via the club’s official website

“When I first came here I never thought I’d be with the first team within four to six months so that is a really amazing achievement for me.”

Who was City's first match of the season against?

Bristol City go into the final round of Championship games for the regular season 17th in the table.

Nigel Pearson’s side avoided any relegation scrap but will be hoping for better fortunes next campaign.

Their final opponent of this season is promotion chasing Huddersfield Town on May 7.

The Verdict

The defender has impressed those behind the scenes to earn a longer stay with the club.

Given the age profile of the defensive unit of the senior team, having a promising young defender coming through is a very encouraging sign.

Perhaps Idenhen will be rewarded with his new contract with another appearance in the side’s final game of the season.

The 19-year old will be hoping to play a larger role in the side next campaign as City look to climb the Championship table.
