BRISTOL City have completed the signing of Crewe Alex striker Nicky Maynard for a club record fee of £2.25million.
The talented 21-year-old, who was Crewe’s top scorer last season with 15 goals, signed a four-year deal with the championship club yesterday (Thursday).
The popular striker was tracked by a host of teams since scoring with his first touch on his league debut in 2006.
He went on to net 35 goals in just 65 games before moving to Ashton Gate.
Maynard is expected to make his Robins debut in a pre-season friendly against Royal Antwerp tonight.
