Bristol City have signed midfielder Gary O'Neil on a free transfer from recently relegated Norwich City.

The 33-year-old, who made 27 Premier League appearances for the Canaries in 2015-16, has signed a two-year deal.

The former Middlesbrough and West Ham United man, who began his career at Portsmouth, has won promotion from the Championship with four different clubs.

"Gary is a really good signing for us, who adds everything we need to our midfield," head coach Lee Johnson said.external-link

"He may have just turned 33, but he's still fully mobile and very fit. He's a really good decision maker who can be a coach's eyes and ears on the pitch."

O'Neil helped QPR to promotion via the play-offs before his move to Norwich in 2014 and has played more than 200 top-flight games.
