Bristol City are set to target loan moves for the remainder of the summer transfer window.
According to Bristol World, several deals are being worked on concurrently with Nigel Pearson looking to improve his Robins side.
The Championship club are looking to recruit at least one, if not two, new players to the side before the September 1 deadline day.
The club has been exploring their options as they look to recruit young talent from the Premier League.
The likes of Elliot Anderson and Tim Iroegbunam have been linked with the club during the summer, but Cameron Archer will not be joining City for the season ahead after Villa decided to keep the forward at Villa Park instead of going on another loan.
Bristol City are also not interested in making a move for Jovane Cabral despite reports suggesting that the Cape Verde international was closing in on a deal to bring him to Ashton Gate.
Pearson’s side got their new season underway on Saturday with a defeat to Hull City.
Quiz: Can you remember the score the last time Bristol City played at these 26 stadiums?
A recurring issue from last year reared its head once again as the team threw away a result from a leading position, with a 94th minute concession seeing the team walk away from the MKM Stadium empty handed.
Next up for City is the visit of Sunderland on August 6.
The loan market could be a good avenue for short-term success for Bristol City as they look to climb the Championship table.
The two aforementioned linked players would both be exciting additions to the team, but there are other options available on the loan market should they fail to materialise.
The loss of Antoine Semenyo to injury has been a big blow to the team’s pre-season preparations.
But a good last few weeks of the transfer window could set the team straight on competing for their top half of the table ambitions for the season ahead.
