Former Bristol City forward Jay Emmanuel-Thomas has reiterated his determination to return to Ashton Gate and many Robins fans have called on the South West club to make it happen.
The 29-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Thai side PTT Rayong last summer but played arguably the best football of his career with City.
Emmanuel-Thomas joined from Ipswich in 2013 and scored 33 times and added 20 assists for the Robins, helping them secure promotion to the Championship before he was released.
Are these 10 facts about Bristol City actually true?
Stints at QPR, MK Dons, Gillingham, and Rayong would follow but he never rediscovered the form he showed for the Bs3 outfit.
Earlier this month, the mercurial forward indicated that he was keen to rejoin City with a string of posts on Twitter.
