Bristol City boost from Aden Flint transfer agreement as Cardiff City complete another signing

All the latest transfer news surrounding Bristol City and their Championship rivals as the summer window takes hold.

Bristol City are already making progress on their plans for the new season.

Nigel Pearson will want to build a solid platform this season ahead of a campaign where his side simply have to improve.

The Robins settled for a bottom half finish last season and will be desperate to return to the top half next term.

It’s clear new signings will be required to ensure that fate, and City have already snapped up a number of new signings, including Kane Wilson and Kal Naismith.

As the summer window continues, we have rounded up all the latest from Ashton Gate and beyond.

Flint finds landing spot

Stoke City have moved to land soon-to-be former Cardiff centre-back Aden Flint on a free transfer.

The former Bristol City defender will see his contract across the bridge expire at the end of June, and when that happens, he will become a Potters player.

Crucially, the deal should mean Stoke are less likely to pursue Robins star Tomas Kalas this summer, with the Staffordshire club eyeing Kalas this summer.

Cardiff sign another

Cardiff have completed a free transfer of their own, moving to snap up Leicester City full-back Vontae Daley-Campbell.

The Bluebirds confirmed today that they have agreed a three-year deal for the 21-year-old, who made three senior appearances under Brendan Rodgers.

Cardiff have enjoyed a rapid start to the summer window, completing six new signings so far, spending less than £100,000.

Boro opportunity

Middlesbrough will get the chance to sign a loan star on a reduced fee this summer.

Andraz Sporar spent this eason on loan with Boro from Sporting CP, scoring eight times in the Championship.

Boro turned down the option to buy him for £7.3million, but according to Jornal de Notícias, via SportWitness, Sporting will now sell for £5.1million, and that could tempt the Teesside club.
