Anderson, Semenyo, Bakinson: The latest Bristol City news headlines you might have missed

Published

on

Bristol City didn’t have a season as successful as they would’ve hoped last season finishing the campaign sat 17th in the league. 

Nigel Pearson is keen for his side to have a more positive campaign in 2022/23 and the boss has made a number of signings in preparation for the upcoming season.

Not only has he added to his side but the Robins have also retained some key players in the squad that will no doubt help their aims.

With the transfer window still open for some time, there’s no guarantee they will be in the same shape by the end of next month.

However, with their opening game against Hull City this weekend nearly upon us, the club with no doubt be feeling good.

With that in mind, here we take a look at some of the latest news coming out of Ashton Gate.

Elliot Anderson

After an impressive season on loan with Bristol Rovers last season, there is plenty of interest in 19-year-old Elliot Anderson again this summer.

The youngster is keen to fight for a place in the side at parent club Newcastle United but following their takeover, this does look like a more unlikely option meaning a loan move may be on the cards.

According to the Edinburgh Evening News, there are now 12 clubs throughout the Championship, League One and Scotland chasing his signature of which Bristol City are one.

To see Anderson go anywhere but the Championship on loan next season would come as a shock and although you can imagine a side that’s pushing further up the table may be more attractive, regular game time will also come into play meaning City may be able to provide that.

If the Robins could land this signing, it would be a massive boost ahead for the new season.

Ashton Gate?

Antoine Semenyo

As per our Football League World Exclusive, Middlesbrough have made enquiries about Robins forward Semenyo.

In preparation for the new season, Boro are in search of three new attackers.

This would be a big loss for City if they were to lose the player although with his current contract expiring next summer, the club may be left with no choice if a good offer comes in for their player this summer.

That being said, Chris Wilder has since revealed that his side have made three offers for Premier League sides which could mean they are now looking elsewhere for their targets for the new season.

This doesn’t make City completely safe but it certainly provides them a boost in the hope of keeping their forward.

Tyreeq Bakinson 

The 23-year-old joined Sheffield Wednesday last week on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee.

This is a transfer that comes as no surprise this summer given Nigel Pearson’s public address stating that players could leave if they didn’t want to be at Ashton Gate.

The midfielder spent the second half of last season on loan with Ipswich Town making 17 appearances during his time with the club although he didn’t do enough to convince Kieran McKenna to take up the option to buy him.

Nevertheless, this is a deal that all parties will no doubt be glad to see over the line.
