Ryan Shotton is on Bristol City’s summer wishlist if Aden Flint leaves, according to The Sun.
With the departure of Aden Flint looking increasingly inevitable, Bristol City are considering their options as they look for a new talisman at the back.
Aden Flint has been a consistent performer at the heart of Bristol City’s defence despite their recent struggles.
This has caught the attention of a number of potential suitors, who have been lining up a move for the 6’5” centre half.
Flint’s exit would leave a gaping hole in Bristol City’s defence and Lee Johnson has been identifying potential replacements.
Fleetwood Town defender Cian Bolger has emerged as a key target.
Ryan Shotton is also on the Robins’ list of transfer targets.
The Birmingham City defender only joined the club last summer but Bristol City are aiming to prise him away from St Andrew’s.
The 28-year-old is arguably enjoying his most profitable spell of his career after stints with Stoke City and Derby County.
Predominantly a centre back, Shotton can also operate as a full back and his consistent displays in the Championship have caught Bristol City’s attention.
Aden Flint is being lined up by Premier League duo West Brom and West Ham.
If he does go, Bristol City will make their move for Bolger and Shotton to strengthen their defensive options ahead of next season.
