Bristol City

Bristol City’s stance on Cardiff, Swansea and Derby target clarified



Bristol City have reportedly never been interested in Cardiff City, Derby County and Swansea City target Harry Wilson. 

EFL clubs have until 5pm today to complete any transfer business with other English clubs and Wilson appears set to move before then.

Reports have indicated that Cardiff, Derby and Swansea have all been in pursuit of the Liverpool winger but that a deal has been agreed with the Bluebirds and it is understood he is due for a medical in the Welsh capital.

The Robins were another of the clubs touted with an interest in the 23-year-old but the Bristol Post’s Gregor MacGregor has clarified their stance on the player, reporting that they were never interested in signing him.

Wilson tore up the Championship during his season in the second tier – scoring 18 goals and providing six assists while on loan at Derby in 2018/19.

The Wales international spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, adding seven goals in the Premier League, but has been unable to secure another top-flight move and appears to be no part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans for the current season.

Do Bristol City and Bristol Rovers have these 10 things in common?

Both clubs were established before 1890

The Verdict

MacGregor is a trusted source when it comes to the Robins, so it is good to get his clarification on the club’s stance on the potential move.

Given Wilson’s preferred position is on the wing and City play a 3-5-2, it’s no real surprise that they were never interested.

The Ashton Gate outfit’s strategy has been clear this summer, with all their signings made before the start of the Championship season.

That appears to have worked well so far, with Dean Holden’s men top of the table after four games.
