The January transfer window is always busy across the 31 days, as teams attempt to put the finishing touches on their squad that enable them to compete during the final few months of the season.
Bristol City are one club that is set for a scramble across the last couple of days as they attempt to put the final touches on their squad at Ashton Gate that will actively see them make a push for the playoff spots across the next few months.
Here, we take a look at one in and one out that could still happen at Bristol City between now and tomorrow’s transfer deadline…
In – Ethan Ampadu
One player that has been linked with the Robins across the past few hours is young central midfielder Ethan Ampadu, currently on the books of Chelsea.
The youngster is on loan at RB Leipzig at the moment, but he has only made five appearances since arriving on loan there last summer.

Frank Lampard at Chelsea is now thought to be considering a late recall for him, with Lee Johnson the manager at the front of the queue that is attempting to secure his signature.
The midfielder would add versatility to the squad, as he is also able to feature at centre-back, and he would bring composure and ability on the ball no matter where he was to slot into the Bristol City team.
The 19-year-old needs a regular run of games in senior football, and with Chelsea maintaining a strong relationship with the Championship club, Ashton Gate could be the perfect home for Ampadu.
Out – Josh Brownhill
The Robins could be set to lose one of their main assets in the next few hours, with reports filtering through that the 24-year-old is set for a permanent move to Premier League side Burnley.
Having captained the Robins for the majority of the season, his departure from Ashton Gate is bound to be an emotional one, and Johnson is thought to be lining up Ampadu as a replacement for Brownhill.
Sean Dyche is keen to get his hands on the highly sought-after midfielder, who has been a regular within the midfield at Ashton Gate this season as he has featured in 29 games across all competitions and scored five goals.
The midfielder is ambitious and he will be wanting to compete in the top flight of English football while he is at his peak, and with the Robins no guarantee to get promotion, Brownhill looks set for the exit door.
