Veteran striker Aaron Wilbraham has signed a new one-year contract with Sky Bet Championship club Bristol City according to the Bristol Post.

The 37-year-old Knutsford born hotshot was expected to leave Ashton Gate this summer with the player having taken some time to consider the club’s offer of a new contract however it has now been confirmed that Wilbraham will remain with Bristol City for another 12 months.

Wilbraham will combine his playing duties with a coaching role with The Robins in what will be his fourth season at Ashton Gate.

The striker has enjoyed a long playing career which has seen Wilbraham win promotion on no less than five occasions with five different clubs while the player has netted 136 goals in 606 career appearances.

Wilbraham started his senior career in 1997 with Stockport County while he spent time with Norwegian outfit Moss FK during his time at Edgeley Park. Spells with Hull City and Oldham Athletic followed before the striker scored over half a century of goals during a five-and-a-half year stay with MK Dons.

Since leaving the Buckinghamshire club, Wilbraham has spent time with both Norwich City and Crystal Palace before joining current club Bristol City in summer 2014. The player won a Sky Bet League One promotion and EFL Trophy double in his first season at Ashton Gate while the forward has played a key role for the club in the last two seasons.
