Bristol City and Watford eyeing up moves for Championship stalwart



Watford and Bristol City are interested in signing Wigan Athletic defender Chey Dunkley, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The 28-year-old has been a key player for the Latics this season, scoring six goals in 26 Championship appearances before breaking his leg back in February.

Dunkley’s future at the DW Stadium looks uncertain, though, with the central defender set to become a free agent after failing to sign a new deal with the club.

Which club did City sign Dan Bentley from?

Wigan were reportedly looking to agree fresh terms with Dunkley before the club fell into administration last month, and a new deal looks unlikely.

According to the Daily Mail, both Watford and Bristol City are monitoring his situation and are interested in signing Dunkley, who could be available to sign on a free transfer.

The Hornets and the Robins will both be looking to ignite promotion pushes next season, and the addition of a dominant central defender like Dunkley could be a shrewd one for either side.

The Verdict

I think that Dunkley would be a top signing for either of this sides on a free transfer.

He’s an established player at Championship level and has been immense for Wigan this season, scoring a decent amount of goals for a defender with two coming against City.

The Robins need to bolster their defensive options, as Ashley Williams has been poor at times this season, and the likes of Taylor Moore and Tomas Kalas need competition.
