Bristol City's 2022/23 campaign has drawn to a close, and there's a general feeling of optimism around the place for next season. Nigel Pearson has spoken about how big of a summer it is for him, and he's right, because he's entering the last of his three-year contract, and he once spoke about getting this club to the Premier League.

The 59-year-old has been dealt the difficult task of remaining competitive whilst also cutting the wage bill, with a whole host of high earners departing the club during his tenure. He's had some money to spend, but he has mainly brought in free transfers with the loan market not utilised. Pearson - the third longest serving manager in the Championship, has yet to make a loan signing, but he did try by making moves for Brighton's Reda Khadra, and Jake O'Brien of Crystal Palace.

This summer is huge in terms of what comes next, because for once, Pearson is being given money to spend, and we could even see new signings come the end of the month. Ultimately, it'll be him and technical director Brian Tinnion who make the decisions, but that doesn't stop fans from making their opinions known when either a player is acquired or sold.

An important decision to be made this summer is whether to part ways with Alex Scott, who is regarded as the best young player in the Championship. He’s no longer the best kept secret at Ashton Gate, with the 19-year-old the talk of much of the Premier League, if you believe the speculation.

Do you think that the star boy should stay around for another season, and if not how much is he worth? For all that and much more, take part in our Big Bristol City Transfer Survey here.
