Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill has sent a message to Matty Taylor, after the striker joined Oxford United on loan.
The 29-year-old centre-forward was an important player for Bristol City last season, scoring four goals in 33 Championship appearances, as the Robins just missed out on the play-offs.
The striker has joined Oxford on a season-long loan, although Bristol City will have the option to recall him in January should they wish to.
Taylor has scored nine goals in 75 appearances for Bristol City and his Robins teammate Brownhill has sent him a message on social media, wishing him all the best for his time at Oxford.

Brownhill was also an important player for Bristol City last season, scoring five goals in 45 Championship appearances.
Bristol City are hoping to challenge for promotion this season, after just missing out on the play-offs last term and have started the new campaign by taking four points from their opening three games.
The Robins face last season’s play-off finalists Derby County in their next game at Pride Park on Tuesday.
Taylor has been an important player for Bristol City over the past few years and I’m sure his teammates will be disappointed to see him leave the club – even though it’s only a loan.
I’m sure Taylor will appreciate this message from Brownhill and will be hoping to get his career back on track with Oxford.
The striker probably wasn’t going to get much of a chance in the first-team at Ashton Gate this season, so going out on loan was probably the best option for his career.
He’s got plenty of experience in League One though, so he could turn out to be a very good signing for Oxford.
