Bristol City Transfer Rumours

Bristol City transfer round-up: Sessegnon interest, Diedhiou update, stance on Ayala and Gibson

Published

on

Bristol City made a strong start to their preparations for the 2020/21 campaign on the weekend as they beat Cheltenham Town 4-0 in a pre-season friendly. 

It was a positive first step for new head coach Dean Holden ahead of his first campaign in the top job.

Holden, who served as Lee Johnson’s assistant for four years and was appointed as his replacement, has already signed Wigan midfielder Joe Williams but will surely be keen to continue to strengthen.

But who else are the Robins keen on signing? And are any of their players set to depart?

We aim to bring you all the latest transfer talk…

City keen on Steven Sessegnon

We’ll start with the most recent link.

According to Bristol Post’s Gregor MacGregor, the Robins are keen on Sessegnon as they look to replace Pedro Pereira – who returned to Benfica at the end of his loan deal.

The Fulham defender impressed in a short spell last term but fell down the pecking order and could be available following the west London club’s promotion and the arrival of Antonee Robinson.

It is understood that Swansea City and Reading are also keen.

New deal for Famara Diedhiou close

The City striker’s future has been uncertain this summer with just a year left on his deal and reports hinting at a move away.

However, Holden told BBC Radio Bristol last week that Diedhiou would love to stay at the club and that with talks between Mark Ashton and his agent on going, a new deal looks to be close.

Can you name where each of these 14 ex-Bristol City players are playing now?

Where is Cauley Woodrow playing now?

Jonny Smith generating interest

One player that could be set to leave is Smith.

The Robins have reportedly already rejected a bid from Wycome Wanderers for the 23-year-old winger but interest remains, with League One clubs also keen.

Interest in Jazz Richards remains 

It is understood that the Robins remain interested in Richards – the free agent full-back that left Cardiff City this summer.

He is on Ashton’s list of transfer targets at right-back along with a number of other names.

No truth in centre-back rumours

Two players who City aren’t considering moves for are Burnley’s Ben Gibson and free agent Daniel Ayala.

The Bristol Post has claimed that suggestions to the contrary are false.

Adam Nagy’s future clarified

The midfielder’s debut season at Ashton Gate wasn’t wholly convincing and having struggled to settle at the club, he started just 16 times in the Championship last term.

It is understood, however, he will stay at City this summer and is keen to battle for a place in Holden’s side.
