BREAKING: Defender joins Bristol City

George Tanner makes switch to Championship club

30 August 2021

Carlisle United can confirm that defender George Tanner has today joined Bristol City for an undisclosed fee on a three-year contract.

Tanner, 21, sparked a busy summer for the Blues two pre-seasons ago when he became the first signing of the August 2020 transfer window, joining the club on a two-year deal.

He made 48 appearances for the Cumbrians, scoring three goals along the way.

Blackpool-born Tanner joined Manchester United as a youngster before earning a place on their scholarship programme. He went on to sign his first professional contract with the Red Devils in January 2018.

He enjoyed a fruitful loan spell with Morecambe through the first half of the 2019/20 campaign where he made a total of 29 appearances in all competitions.
