Bristol City

The future of Bristol City fan-favourite finally settled

Published

on

Bristol City attacking midfielder Kasey Palmer will be staying with the club this January despite rumours that the club were looking to move him on emerging earlier in the transfer window.

News had emerged that The Robins had offered Charlton Palmer as part of a swap deal for marksman Lyle Taylor, an offer which Charlton rejected.

And, according to The Bristol Post, Lee Johnson will now be keeping the fan-favourite at Ashton Gate.

Writing in response to a question during a Q&A, Bristol City reported Gregor MacGregor said: “Kasey Palmer is staying and it’s only Semenyo who could go out if the Robins grab a striker.”

What is Scott Murray doing now?

Palmer has become a fan-favourite among the fans since arriving 12 months ago on an initial six month loan which became permanent in the summer.

The 23-year-old scored once and assisted three more in the second tier so far this season in 19 appearances, but has fallen out of favour in recent weeks – playing just twice in the last ten games.

City are currently perched in eighth place with just two points separating them from a place in the play-offs as Lee Johnson looks to guide his side to promotion.

Tomorrow sees them travel to Reading where they will have the chance to narrow the gap even further, although the Royals have lost just once in their last eight Championship games, so it will be anything but easy.

The verdict

This is a very wise decision from the club and one which will have saved them a lot of flak from the club’s fans.

Palmer is a very popular figure among the supporters and as one of the few players in the side who can get people on their feet with some explosive skill or outrageous pass, he could be essential.

A big problem for Bristol City has been their product in the attacking third and ultimately they stand a much better chance of improving that with Palmer in and around the team.
