Deal Close: Bristol City set to sign Premier League defender on loan



Bristol City are expected to complete the signing of Sunderland man Adam Matthews on loan, according to the Bristol Post.


The former Cardiff man is expected to join on a deal until the end of the season, at which point Robins manager Lee Johnson is expected to review the deal and consider making a permanent move in the summer.

Matthews, who is a full Welsh international, has struggled for game time at the Stadium of Light this season and is expected to seal a move to Ashton Gate and help the Robins fend off any sort of relegation worries which linger over the club.

At 24, Matthews is still young enough to get his career back on track following his so far failed move to the North East, and he will be hoping to get enough game time under his belt to ensure he is not out of contention for the European Championships in the summer.

If Matthews does complete the move today, he is expected to be added straight to the squad to take on Wolves tomorrow night.

Bristol currently sit in 20th place in the Championship table, five points clear of the bottom three, but will be confident of staving off relegation as performances have improved since Johnson took over.

Robins fans, what do you think to this? Would Matthews be a good signing? Let us know in the comments!
