PLAYER PROFILE

Full-back Luke Ayling penned a three-year deal over the summer to join from Championship rivals Bristol City.

Ayling began his career at Arsenal, where he was a youth team-mate of Kyle Bartley, and progressed through the ranks to sign professional terms in 2009.

The defender then moved to Yeovil Town in 2010, initially on loan, without making a senior appearance for the Gunners.

He spent four years on the books at Huish Park, helping the Glovers achieve promotion from League One in 2013, before being snapped up by Bristol City the following year.

Ayling also helped his new club secure a return to the Championship and made 33 league appearances in the second tier last term, establishing himself as a regular fixture at Ashton Gate as they secured an 18th-place finish.
