Bristol City are interested in a deal for Everton youngster Liam Walsh, according to The Sun.
The 20-year-old joined Birmingham City in the summer on a season-long loan deal, but had his spell with the Blues cut short by Steve Cotterill following his arrival at the club.
Back at his parent club, the midfielder appears to have no future with Sam Allardyce’s side, with the Toffees keen to cash in on the academy graduate in the new year.
Robins boss Lee Johnson is a keen admirer of the youngster, and is reportedly willing to spend up to £1 million bring the player to Ashton Gate in January.
Johnson’s side are enjoying an excellent season, and lie just four points from second-place Cardiff City approaching the halfway stage of the campaign.
The former Barnsley manager is keen to bolster his side in January, and views Walsh as an ideal addition to the squad.
Things didn’t work out for Walsh at St Andrew’s, but the youngster will surely jump at an opportunity to join Bristol City on a permanent deal.
There is nothing worse for a player to not be wanted by your club, and Walsh has experienced this on two occasions already this term.
Johnson’s interest in the player is a real show of faith, and Walsh will be keen to repay the young boss should he take the gamble and splash a million on his signature.
Walsh has a lot of talent, and could discover his ability under Johnson’s guidance.
