Sceptical Bristol City pull plug on Mifsud transfer

Bristol City have pulled out of a deal to sign Michael Mifsud from Coca-Cola Championship rivals Coventry after Robins boss Gary Johnson revealed he had doubts about the player's commitment.

City agreed a fee of £1.5million for the Malta striker last week and he looked certain to move to Ashton Gate until Johnson had a change of heart after meeting the transfer-listed Sky Blues frontman.

Johnson told the club's official website: 'I don't think he's right for us. I know people will be shocked by that and this is not me trying to enhance my reputation for interview techniques.

'I can't commit £1.5million of the club's money to people that I don't think can be committed to the club over three years.

'That means so much to me and this football club. We've worked so hard over the last few years getting where we are with the dressing room we have.

'When I talk to people and try to do a deal with them you get to know their weaknesses. Although they might be very good players, in the end if they aren't the right personality for me and the club they'll let you down in the end.'

Yesterday, chairman Steve Lansdown revealed a club-record deal for Egypt striker Emad Meteb had been called off after he turned out for former club Al Ahly without permission.
