Bristol City and Hull City ‘battle’ for Derby County star, West Ham United ‘line up’ Nottingham Forest captain

The Robins are looking to add some experience to their squad during the close-season.

There are just two weeks to go until the summer transfer window opens for business - and it can’t come soon enough for Bristol City manager Nigel Pearson.

The former Leicester City boss has already added one new face to his squad after he completed the signing of former Oxford United midfielder Mark Sykes.

The Robins have also added to their youth ranks with Guernsey teenagers Ben Acey and Tim Ap Sion making the step up from the non-league game.

Several players are expecting to depart over the summer months with Republic of Ireland midfielder Callum O’Dowda already on his way out after spending the last six seasons at Ashton Gate.

The hard work is only just getting underway for Pearson and he is believed to be keen to add one former Premier League defender to his ranks - but will face competition from a Championship rival for his signature.

Bristol World takes a look at the latest transfer speculation surrounding the Robins and a number of their league rivals.
