The transfer of Josh Brownhill to Premier League side Burnley is not close to happening just yet as the Robins consider their stance on the situation.
BristolLive are reporting that Bristol City want to keep the central midfielder with the club until the summer at the very least, but that they are accepting the fact that the 24-year-old is likely to be a Premier League player next season.
Despite Burnley having shown consistent interest in the former Manchester United youth player, Brighton & Hove Albion as well as Sheffield United are also analysing the situation around the on-pitch captain of Bristol City.
Sean Dyche’s Burnley are currently thought to be locked in talks with the Robins over a £6 million transfer for the central midfielder, however one snag in Burnley’s plans is that Brownhill is currently happy with life in Bristol and enjoying his football.

The 24-year-old joined the Robins on a free transfer in 2016 after being released by Preston North End, and he has gone on to become a mainstay in the City side, having scored five goals in 26 league appearances this season.
Bristol City are likely to try and negotiate the right deal for Brownhill during the January transfer window as they attempt to keep hold of their brightest talent and their talisman.
Burnley will be determined to get the transfer done this January however if Bristol City do keep hold of the midfielder and don’t gain promotion from the Premier League this season, then the Clarets are likely to be back for the star in January.
