Robins Hold On To John

Bristol City have extended Stern John's loan to the end of the season. John has scored 2 goals in 12 appearances for Gary Johnson - becoming a valuable member of the Robin set-up.

The Trinidad and Tobago international had no future with the Saints, and the City boss snapped up the experience striker to help him with their promotion push.

Gary Johnson told the City official website: 'Southampton have told him they won't be offering him a new contract at the end of the campaign and we needed that experienced Championship goal scorer in our squad.

'We'll see come May how much he's able to give us. He's good in the dressing room and although you won't see him rushing around on the pitch, he's a very clever player who does a lot of work for the team.'

The 32 year old will be remembered for his two goals which saved the Saints from relegation against Sheffield United on the last of last season. He was a popular player on the pitch with the Saints fans, and a player of his quality will succeed at this level.

I loved Stern and was genuinely sad to see him go. Obviously with wage demands and that, he didn't fit with the 'set-up'. I think he's a good player at this level and City have done well to hold on to him.

We couldn't afford to keep him. John was one of the big earners at the club and to stay financially afloat, we needed to let him go. I was gutted when this happened but we can't keep everyone. Prepared to see more players exit this January. It's going to be a scary month!!!

Yeah, with money ruling football today, we had to let him go. Hopefully McGoldrick can beat Stern's goal tally of last season. pfffffffft
