The true value of Joe Bryan at Bristol City?



Bristol City had a disappointing end to the season and failed to make the top six despite a promising first half of the campaign, that included a memorable run in the Carabao Cup.

However, there’s no doubt that many of Lee Johnson’s squad saw their reputations grow, with Joe Bryan one of the standout players.

The left-back, who can also play in midfield, impressed throughout this season with his desire to get forward and ability on the ball.

Those displays didn’t go unnoticed with Burnley reported to be very interested in signing the 24-year old for around £6m.

And, here at FLW we don’t think that fee is far off his true value, as you can see by our graphic.

As mentioned, Bryan has proven himself to be a very good player in the Championship and he is a modern full-back in the way he plays and is always an option in the final third.

Importantly though, he is still a capable defender and rarely gets shown up by opposition wingers.

Obviously, the reason we don’t value him any higher is because he has yet to play in the top-flight and we’ve seen several players over the years struggle to handle that step up.

Whilst we think he will be able to cope, there’s no doubt he needs to prove himself over time to command a much bigger fee.

Therefore, even though Bristol City fans may want more for one of their star men, if they could get £6.5m it would be a fair fee for a good Championship left-back.
