Bristol City hit with shirt sponsor problem as transfer race for Middlesbrough star intensifies

A look at all the latest Championship news and transfer news as Bristol City prepare to face Blackburn Rovers.

It has been a rather indifferent season for Bristol City, who are closing in on the magic 50-point mark.

The Robins are still 16 points from the bottom three, and safety is all-but guaranteed already as we head towards the final stretch.

And planning will already be underway for next season when City will be hoping to put together a much better campaign.

Though, there is still plenty still to be decided in the Championship, and there is still plenty going on.

With that in mind, here is a round-up of the latest news from the second tier.

City’s sponsor issue

Bristol City are in need of a new shirt sponsor after Mansion Bet ceased trading.

The betting company has ended operations.

The Robins will hope to strike a new deal with a new sponsor sooner rather than later, but they could now face playing the rest of the season with a bare shirt, aside from the club crest and shirt manufacturer Hummel, of course.

Spence race

Middlesbrough star Djed Spence is attracting interest aplenty ahead of this summer.

Spence is currently impressing on loan with Nottingham Forest, and according to Sky Germany, Bayern Munich are now eyeing talks amid interest from Tottenham.

Middlesbrough could be in for a healthy windfall this summer.

Fulham eye Narey move

More reports from Germany, and this one involves a possible transfer bid from Fulham.

Fortuna Dusseldorf winger Khaled Narey is catching the eye with his current club, scoring seven and assisting 11 so far.

Fulham are being tipped to make a move in the summer, though, that looks likely to be part of their Premier League planning given their current position.
