Bristol City manager Lee Johnson has said the club are interested in making loan signing Lee Tomlin a permanent one in the summer, according to the Bristol Post.
The 27-year-old has been a success since his loan move from Premier League AFC Bournemouth, where he has struggled for first team football.
He was excellent for Middlesbrough last season with his flair and assists and even though he was inconsistent Middlesbrough fans, have admitted they would’ve rather kept him.
But he has struggled for game time at Bournemouth so has got game time at Ashton Gate and has been excellent.
Tomlin seemingly has a poor relationship with Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe and he may be let go at the end of the season.
Tomlin would surely prefer first team football in the Championship rather than watching from the bench in the Premier League.
Also he has six goals and a lot of assists for Bristol City since signing and Johnson is keen to sign him on a permanent and build the team around him.
He wants to challenge for promotion last season and the ambitious club want to make Tomlin their first big name signing.
Johnson has been very impressed with his flair and ability and has become a fan favourite, so the fans would surely like to see him signed.
