With Bristol City spending most of last season near the bottom half of the table, boss Nigel Pearson has been busy in the transfer window trying to ensure his squad is ready for the new season.
Even though the club didn’t have the start to the new campaign that they would have wanted – they lost in their opening game to Hull – the side will be desperate to do better this weekend in their next fixture.
In addition, the manager will be looking at trying to bring in some new faces to ensure there is plenty of depth in the squad and so that the first-team can think about looking up the Championship table rather than down it.
With that in mind, here are some of the transfer headlines for the Robins.
Quiz: Can you remember the score the last time Bristol City played at these 26 stadiums?
Bristol City transfer agreed for goalkeeper this season
For Bristol City, one of the first pieces of transfer news is that they have allowed one of their younger players to leave the club on loan.
That Robins player is Will Buse, who has been allowed to join Yeovil Town on a short-term deal until the end of the season according to Bristol World.
The shot-stopper is yet to really feature in the Robins’ first-team and with plenty above him in the pecking order, it means the player is unlikely to get much game-time at Ashton Gate this season.
Instead, the player has now moved on loan to Yeovil, where he will likely get more minutes in competitive football.
With Yeovil in the National League too, it is a good level for the youngster to play at.
Rather than Buse having to just sit on the bench or out of the squad, he will now be able to play regularly with his new club.
Blow for Bristol City as forward set to stay at club
One player the club had been looking to try and sign was Elliot Anderson, who is currently with Newcastle United.
After the player looked impressive for Bristol Rovers in the last campaign, there had been plenty of EFL clubs looking to try and pull off a transfer for the forward this off-season.
However, according to BBC Sport, his Magpies boss Eddie Howe is happy with his level and performance and looks like he might keep Anderson with the first-team squad.
It means a deal for the player might not happen this window and will also mean that Nigel Pearson has to look for other options instead.
The Robins will likely have a few other transfer targets but Anderson had looked solid in League Two and it means that the side will now have to look elsewhere for a forward.
Bristol City and plenty of other EFL clubs will be left disappointed over a potential transfer deal for the Newcastle man.
Bristol City player wanted by Celtic
Another potential Bristol City player transfer this off-season could be Antoine Semenyo, who is wanted by Celtic according to the Sunderland Echo.
The striker played some very good football for the Robins last season and produced a total of eight goals and 12 assists in just 24 starts in the Championship during the last campaign.
Considering the player’s ability, experience and age, it is no surprise that a club like Celtic are considering a transfer bid.
It appears that the Scottish side want to try and sign the player this window for their own campaign in the Scottish Premier League – but in a bit of good news for City fans, it doesn’t appear as though there has been an official bid for the player from them yet this summer.
