Bristol City may still be on the lookout for new additions after the transfer deadline.

The Robins have put together a solid start to the new season, sitting just outside the playoff position as things stand.

City appear to have improved significantly, but they have not added many new faces, with only four players coming in.

The Robins could yet move to add to their squad with free transfers, though, something they are still able to do.

Here we take a look at the top 10 available free agents.

Sol Bamba

Bamba, who enjoyed his most successful spell at Cardiff, is a free agent after leaving Middlesbrough.

The centre-back previously battled cancer, but he is now fit and almost ready, with the Robins already considering a deal.

The centre-back has been with Fulham since 2020, joining from Chelsea, where he came through the academy.

Leandro Bacuna

Bacuna has not managed to find a new club since leaving Cardiff City at the end of last season.

The striker has a complicated injury history, and that may be part of the reason he is yet to be snapped up.

Neil Taylor

The former Wales international left Middlesbrough after last season, and he is looking for a new club at 33 years of age.

Taylor has prebiously played for Swansea City and Aston Villa.

Robert Snodgrass

Snodgrass is now 34 years of age, and he finds himself without a club after leaving Luton Town on the back of a short-term deal.

It’s reported Snodgrass has offers from Scotland.

Gary Cahill
