The midfielder has been an important component of the Robins side this season, and in the summer he became captain of the club.
Lee Johnson has used him as a regular throughout the campaign and he’s played 29 games this season contributing five goals and two assists to the Bristol City side.
It is not part of the deal, but Burnley’s Nahki Wells is set to move the other way and sign for the Robins on a permanent deal.
24-year-old Brownhill has been a massive success for the Robins and has played a pivotal role in their push for a place in the top six. He signed from Preston in 2016, and has made over 100 appearances since arriving at Ashton Gate.

It is quite the fee that Bristol City are going to get for the midfielder, and there seems to be quite a lot of money changing hands between the two clubs today.
Brownhill has a lot of potential and has been a star in the Championship as he excelled in a more important role under Johnson.
He’s now become a regular but more importantly he’s started to take responsibility which is promising ahead of his chance in the Premier League.
He’s going to a side where he’ll suit the style of play as Brownhill’s best asset is his work-rate. Something Sean Dyche will have seen as a major reason to sign the player.
