One in, one out: How Bristol City’s transfer window could play out if rumours are correct

Published

on

The January transfer window is always a busy period for clubs up and down the country, as clubs look to recruit and offload the players that could make the difference in a promotion or relegation battle.

The same will be happening at Ashton Gate, as manager Lee Johnson looks to put a plan into place to try and recruit the correct players that can get Bristol City’s playoff push back on track after a slight dip in form over the past month.

Here, we take a look at one player who could be arriving at Ashton Gate this month and one player and one player who could be heading out the exit door…

In – Andraz Sporar

The Robins have been looking for a striker since Benik Afobe ruptured his Anterior Cruciate Ligament back in September, and despite Rodri signing on a short-term contract in October, the club are still in the market for a forward.

Johnson has turned his attentions to that of Slovan Bratislava striker Andraz Sporar across the past few months, with the Slovenian international having netted 20 goals in 26 games across all club competitions so far this season.

1. Who joined Plymouth Argyle on loan in January 2020?

The club are believed to have put down a formal offer for the striker in the last couple of days, as Johnson hopes to beat Scottish champions Celtic to the striker’s signature and bring him to Ashton Gate sooner rather than later.

The striker would bring pace, creativity and an eye for goal to the front-line in BS3, as well as providing some much-needed strength in depth to the strike force which currently includes Famara Diedhiou and Andreas Weimann.

Out – Hakeeb Adelakun

The 23-year-old winger has departed for Rotherham United.

The winger joined the Robins from Scunthorpe United in the summer of 2018 but has only made the five appearances in the red shirt of Bristol City as he has had to make do with regular minutes in the under-23 side.

Having not appeared in senior football since New Year’s Day 2019, a loan move to Rotherham will be a welcome one for Adelakun as he looks to continue his development and put the last year behind him, with regular senior football likely to be a priority of his over the next few months.
