Bristol City look to be headed for an interesting transfer window as talks of incomings and outgoings are linked following their mid-table finish during the 2022/23 Championship season. We’ve put together the latest transfer updates for the Robins as they prepare to get stuck into their summer business.
Ross McCrorie transfer fee agreed
The Robins are close to bringing Ross McCrorie to Ashton Gate this summer after agreeing a fee of more than £2 million with Aberdeen, according to the Daily Record. After settling on the financial aspect, the Dons have given their vice captain permission to enter talks with Bristol City, who could announce his arrival next week.
Talks have been ongoing between the two sides and Bristol are set to snub fellow Championship sides for McCrorie’s signature. He is very soon set to be headed south for his medical and everything looks set to be wrapped up.
Alex Scott addresses Premier League links
Alex Scott has a lot of eyes on him at the moment and there are Premier League sides interested in snapping him up. The 19-year-old is already valued at €20 million (£17m) by Transfermarkt and Nigel Pearson has even backed him to go on to play top flight football and even represent England in the near future.
Scott himself has now addressed the rumours and has admitted it is “a good feeling” to be linked with potential Premier League moves.
“Obviously, that’s a nice feeling to have, but for me, I just ignore it as much as possible,” he recently told SPORTbible. “I won’t read anything on Twitter and I’ve let family members know to not read anything you see because half the time, it’s not true.
“For me, it’s just about focusing on my football — then we’ll see what happens after that. I don’t want to put a specific time on when these things will play out. Of course, I’d like to play at the highest level one day.”
