Bristol City will be looking to challenge higher up the Championship standings next term, whilst under the management of Nigel Pearson. 

The Robins struggled for a positive run of results in the second-half of the 2020/21 campaign, as they finished 19th in the table last term.

It’s been a busy summer at Ashton Gate, with players heading for the exit door when their contracts with the club reached a conclusion.

The likes of Jamie Paterson, Marley Watkins and Adrian Mariappa are among those to depart, Pearson has wasted no time in adding to his squad during the summer transfer window.

Matty James, Andy King and Rob Atkinson arrived at Ashton Gate, as Pearson looks to push his side further up the Championship next term.

The Robins are set to take on newly-promoted Blackpool in their opening match of the 2021/22 campaign, in what could be a tricky test up against the Tangerines.

We take a look at the latest Bristol City transfer rumours from the last week, as they edge closer to their new league campaign getting underway in under a month’s time.

He spent last year’s campaign on loan with Lincoln City, but his efforts weren’t enough as they missed out on promotion into the Championship after a defeat to Blackpool in the League One play-off final.
