The 34-year-old left Watford at the end of the 2019-20 campaign after a four-year spell with the Hornets, for whom he also played between 2005 and 2012.

“I am thrilled to secure a player of [his] quality and experience,” chief executive Mark Ashton told Bristol City’s website.

“Our supporters should be excited to see him in a Bristol City shirt.”

Head coach Dean Holden added: “We’ve done our due diligence and received some fantastic character references and that’s really important for me.

“When we spoke I could hear his hunger to come here, continue his career and achieve something special at this football club.”
