Bristol City have confirmed the signing of Fulham defender Alfie Mawson on a season-long loan deal ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
Mawson made 28 appearances in all competitions for the Cottagers last term, but struggled for consistent game time in the second-half of last season after Michael Hector arrived from Chelsea.
Fulham won promotion into the Premier League under the guidance of Scott Parker in the 2019/20 season, after they beat Brentford in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.

Mawson is clearly eager to secure regular game time this term though, and has joined a Bristol City side that will be targeting promotion into the top-flight themselves.
The Robins finished 12th in the Championship last season, and will be eager to get this year’s league campaign off to a winning start, when they take on Coventry City in the opening weekend of fixtures.
Plenty of Bristol City supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on Mawson’s arrival.
