Bristol City

Leeds United and Middlesbrough in the race to sign 7-goal Championship star

Published

Leeds United and Middlesbrough are interested in signing Joe Bryan from Bristol City this summer, although the Robins are yet to receive any bids for the left-back.  

According to a report in the Bristol Post, Leeds and Boro are very interested in signing Bryan this summer, as they look to solve their respective problems at left-back ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.

Bryan has impressed during his time at Ashton Gate, establishing himself as one of the best left-backs outside the Premier League.

The 24-year-old has made well over 200 appearances having come through Bristol City’s academy, with his form last season in the Championship putting Lee Johnson’s side in play-off contention.

In 43 league appearances, Bryan scored five goals and registered three assists, helping Johnson’s side to 11th.

A further five appearances came in the Carabao Cup, with Bryan scoring two goals in that competition, as the Robins reached the semi-final.

Bryan scored in Bristol City’s 2-1 victory over Manchester United in that memorable cup run.

Alongside Leeds and Boro, there is Premier League interest in the left-back, but Bristol City are yet to receive any bids for Bryan at this stage of the summer.

The Verdict

Joe Bryan is probably the best left-back in the Championship, with his form over the last 12 months really impressive.

Seven goals is an impressive return for a full-back, whilst defensively, Bryan is improving all the time.

Left-back has become a problem position for both Leeds and Boro, which needs resolving this summer.
