Leicester City Filip Benkovic has revealed why he decided to join Bristol City during the winter transfer window, despite interest from former loan club Celtic and Middlesbrough.
The defender completed a short loan deal on Deadline Day after The Foxes confirmed the arrival of Wolverhampton center-back Ryan Bennett.
Stating to the official Bristol City website, the 22-y-o expressed his excitement at helping the Robins reach the Premier League, suggesting that it was that new challenge that tempted him to the Championship.
I found out about interest from Bristol City a few weeks ago and I was really excited about that option. Now I’m here, I’m really grateful for that opportunity because the club has the opportunity to do something big. I’ll work hard every day.
