Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas has completed his loan move to Championship side Bristol City.
The 25-year-old, who can play as a central defender or right-back, becomes City’s ninth signing of the summer, with the loan window remaining open until the end of August.
Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson said: “Tomas’ signing shows the ambition that Bristol City have because there was a lot of interest and we beat a number of Championship and top European clubs to get him.
“The experience Tomas brings to this football club will be invaluable and I am really looking forward to working with him.
“He has already proven himself at Championship level and I have no doubts that he can help us in our bid to reach new heights.”
Kalas spent the last two seasons on loan at Fulham, helping them win promotion to the Premier League.
