Bristol City are already thought to be preparing for next season and beyond as they begin the hunt for players that may be good enough to come in and improve their squad.
The first player that they have been linked with for the summer transfer window is Crewe Alexandra captain and right-back Perry Ng who has been a regular in League Two this season.
The defender came through the youth system at Crewe and made his way into their first team as he made his debut in the 2015-2016 season. He has since gone on to appear 159 times and score five times for his boyhood club.
Ng is a right-back that can also fill in at centre-back when necessary and is similar to current Robins defender Zak Vyner.
Bristol City already have a couple of options on the right side of defence as the experienced Jack Hunt currently operates as the first-choice down that side. Pedro Pereira finds himself warming the bench as he looks to get minutes under his belt while on a season-long loan from Benfica.

Vyner has spent time out on loan over the last few seasons with the likes of Plymouth Argyle and Rotherham United before joining Aberdeen on loan last summer. He made 18 appearances for the Scottish Premiership side before being recalled by the Robins on January deadline day.
The Bristol City supporters have been busy on Facebook group ‘Bristol City Till I Die‘ debating whether they would sign the defender when the question was put to them.
Here is the best reaction from Robins fans to the Ng rumours…
Mark Whitehouse: Of course, we can then sell him to Norwich who will walk the league again next season.
Grant Heal: Pure ambition, love it.
Kevin James Haskins: All got to start from somewhere.
Cameron Dodimead: Should be playing Pereira. From little I seen of him, he looks so much better defensively than Jack Hunt who is a liability.
Darren Boddy: Lets worry about where we end up first before investing in lower league players. If we get in the play offs and win them, investing in a League Two player would seem an inadequate decision for the club. Time will tell.
Robin Fynn: Haven’t had a decent right-back since Ayling was got rid of.
