Kasey Palmer makes permanent switch to the Championship

Kasey Palmer has today joined Bristol City on a permanent transfer having spent the second half of last season on loan at Ashton Gate.

The midfielder made 17 appearances for Lee Johnson’s side from January onwards as the Robins narrowly missed out on a Championship play-off place. He has previously spent time in the English second tier on loan at Blackburn Rovers, Derby County and Huddersfield Town, winning promotion to the Premier League with the Terriers in 2017.

Palmer made the switch across London from Charlton to Chelsea in 2013 and contributed to silverware success in the FA Youth Cup, UEFA Youth League and Under-21 Premier League.

During his time at the club, he represented England up to Under-21 level and was an unused substitute for a Premier League game at Swansea City in April 2016 under caretaker boss Guus Hiddink.

The 22-year-old will link up once again with former team-mates Jay Dasilva and Tomas Kalas, who have both made permanent transfers to Bristol City this summer after spending 2018/19 on loan at the Championship club.

We thank Kasey for his service to Chelsea and wish him well for the rest of his career.
