FRANK FIELD­ING has been down­load­ing from the app store to help new boy Jonathan Kod­jia set­tle at Bristol City.

Kod­jia joined the club from French side Angers SCO in July and has been paired up with for­mer Eng­land U21 goal­keeper Field­ing on away days. In an at­tempt to speed up the Ivory Coast­born striker’s English, his room­mate has down­loaded a trans­la­tion app on his phone and man­ager Steve Cot­ter­ill is happy to see his € 3mil­lion man wel­comed with open arms.

“Frankie would help any­one out with any­thing, so to get him in with Jonathan’s a bonus,” said Cot­ter­ill.

“It’s not a com­bi­na­tion you would have in­stinc­tively put to­gether – but it works. It’s been a big help that they get on very well.

“The play­ers have taken to Jonathan and it looks like he’s taken to them. The rest of his in­te­gra­tion has come on the train­ing ground.”
