Bristol City handed boost over loan transfer as Robins approve loan exit

Bristol City will be looking to build on their back-to-back wins, and in the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours.

Bristol City have put together a mixed start to the season so far.

The Robins lost back-to-back games to start to the season, but they are now looking up after a draw and back-to-back wins, including a Severnside derby win over Cardiff City.

Nigel Pearson and his men will be desperate to improve this term after a disappointing season of last, and the last two performances, in particular, point to progress.

Though, we could yet see City’s squad get stronger, with another week to go in the transfer window.

On that topic, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding Ashton Gate.

Loan boost

City have been handed a boost in their bid to land Aston Villa star Tim Iroegbunam on loan.

The Robins have been linked with a move for the midfielder this summer, but the likes of Sheffield United, Swansea City and Blackburn Rovers have all been linked.

According to Birmingham Live, Villa have now told the youngster he can head out on loan, which could give City the opportunity they need.

Churchley departs

Speaking of loan moves, City youngster Kai Churchley has now left on loan.

The 17-year-old could do with first team experience, and he will head to Thorbury Town to get some, as detailed by Gloucestershire Live.

Churchley chose City over a number of rivals in 2020, and he is being backed to have a first team future at Ashton Gate.

Pearson extends stay

Yeovil Town have confirmed they have reached an agreement to extend the stay of City youngster Sam Pearson.

The 20-year-old joined the Somerset club on an initial one-month loan spell ahead of the season, but he is already making an impact.

As a result, Yeovil have moved to keep him around until January.

The Welshman has already picked up a man of the match award within his first three appearances for the Glovers.
