Bristol City’s Marlon Pack has activated a clause in his contract which gives him a one-year extension to his deal but they are still planning to offer him a new longer deal according to a report from The Sun via the Bristol Post.
The Robins have been having a great season this year and are currently 6th in the Sky Bet Championship with them looking like a good bet to stay in that top six. A lot of that has been down to Pack who has been a regular in their midfielder. He has been a great player for them in the first half of the season which did lead to some reports of interest in January though nothing seemed to come from them. But it did mean that Bristol City would have to be proactive to make sure that Pack didn’t leave in the future.
So they’ll be glad that Pack has recently activated a clause in his contract which will extend his time at the club for another year. According to this report, by playing a certain amount of appearances the 26-year-old midfielder has activated the clause which gives him the extra year at Ashton Gate. But while that will make the coaching staff a bit more comfortable that Pack will be staying, don’t expect that be the only contract news about Pack.
That’s because the club want Pack to have a longer term deal to make sure any interested teams are put off. And so they will be looking to offer him a big deal in the coming weeks so that Pack will remain a Robin for many more years.
