Wolves allow Sam Vokes to join Bristol City


Sam Vokes is looking forward to starring for Bristol City after Wolves boss Mick McCarthy allowed the the 20-year-old forward to move Ashton Gate on loan until January 5.

The Wales international is expected to make his debut for Steve Coppell's ambitious side against Millwall on Saturday.

Vokes has made ten starts and 38 substitute appearances for Wolves, scoring eight times, since moving to Molineux from Bournemouth two years ago.

He was loaned out to Leeds United last season, scoring once in ten games for the then League One outfit.

Vokes said of the switch:"I definitely feel my time at Leeds added to my game and hopefully I can do the same again at Bristol City.

"At the time I went to Leeds I wasn't playing any games but I went there and played ten on the bounce so it was good for me.

"I was also playing a different role for the team so I've added that to my game since I've come back.

"Scoring goals is the main part of a striker's game but I wanted to improve my all-round game and, although I didn't score many, any improvement to me as a player was welcome.

"I came back and I got into the team that played at Tranmere in the FA Cup and stayed in the squad for a good few months then. That was a big confidence boost for me.

"Hopefully I can do that this season and stay in and around the team as much as possible."
