What a season it’s been for Bristol City who are well on their way to a spot in the play-offs under Lee Johnson.
Johnson came under immense pressure last year after a similar start to the season went sour very quickly, and the Robins found themselves languishing to the lower reaches of the Championship table.
The fear of relegation back to League One did not grip the Ashton Gate hierarchy enough to pull the plug on their manager, and they have reaped the rewards of not being too hasty, as they sit fourth in the table.
Their squad is built on good, young, solid foundations with potential to grow into a very decent side indeed, and they will be hoping to make additions in January that lead to a Premier League spot next year.
One position that Lee Johnson could look to strengthen at the beginning of next year is at right back.
Summer signing Eros Pisano will miss four months of the season with a hamstring injury, and back up is needed.
A player they could look to slot into his role is West Ham right back Sam Byram, who has yet to appear in the Premier League for the Hammers this season.
The 24-year-old ditched Leeds in January 2016 in favour of a Premier League move, having shown his quality at Championship level for a number of years.
However, the move has yet to really work out, with only fleeting appearances in the first-team across the last two years.
Bristol City may have a serious opportunity to pounce on a cut-price deal for Byram, who is an incredibly talented full-back at this level.
This would be a smart move on their part.
Bristol City fans… What do you make of this? Should you sign Byram? Let us know in the comments below!
