Alex Scott is committed to the Bristol City cause amid speculation surrounding his future.

The 18-year-old star is said to have attracted attention from the likes of Tottenham and Leeds United after success with England this summer.

Scott played a key part in England under-19s winning the U-19 European Championships, and there have been rumours he could be picked up by a Premier League club ahead of the new season.

Despite his age, Scott has already racked up 38 senior appearances for City, and he is only getting better as he continues to grow into senior football.

Scott was absent from the Robins side that took on Cheltenham Town today in a pre-season friendly, but he was around the group and has been training with them since their return last week from Austria

And speaking as a commentator on Robins TV, he detailed the plan for him to be reintegrated into first-team action following extended time off on the back of his international commitments over the summer.

“The staff know better than I do. If it was my decision, I would be in now playing this, but it’s important to get rest because when it gets to the second half of the season, I don’t want to blow up,” said the midfielder.

“Obviously, I’m still young and it’s important to get a break when I can, but I just love football.

“After all the training sessions, the staff are having a go at me, saying I need to get in.

“I can’t wait to be back. I think I’ve got 10 days off from now, so I’ll be back ready for the Bournemouth game and the double header. I’m excited to play.”

Scott also spole about City’s aims for the season, and he did not hold back as they look to make an improvement on the 17th-placed finish they recorded last season.

“I want to get promoted,” he added. “That’s the main aim [for this season], to get promotion.”

Scott will be involved in that final pre-season clash with Bournemouth ahead of, hopefully, playing a part in the Championship opener with Hull City on Saturday, July 30.
