Bristol City forward Marley Watkins has joined Scottish side Aberdeen on loan until January, which has drawn an interesting reaction from fans of the South West club.
Watkins has never really established himself in the City side since arriving from Norwich City in 2018, making just 27 appearances and scoring three goals in that time.
The South West club announced today that the forward has joined Aberdeen on loan until January.
The 29-year-old is the latest City player to join former Robins boss Derek McInnes at Aberdeen, with Zak Vyner having moved there on loan last season.
The appointment of Dean Holden, who handed Watkins three of his nine Championship appearances last term while he was caretaker boss, looked as though it could see him get more of an opportunity next term but it appears he is considered excess to requirements at City.
With just one year on his current deal, you’d question whether this spells the end of his Robins career.
Did these 12 ex-Bristol City players actually ever score for the club?
Watkins’ exit has drawn an interesting reaction from fans of the South West club, with some pleased to see him go and others disappointed.

Good luck Marley, go and smash it 🔴⚪️
