Bristol City have been linked with a Premier League midfielder and a youth player has moved out on loan to a non-league outfit.

With reports of pressure mounting on Bristol City boss Nigel Pearson, the former Leicester City manager will be looking to do good business in the transfer window. Who will the Robins look to make a move for in January?

City, alongside another club in the Championship, have been linked with a loan move for a player who currently plays for Nottingham Forest. As Forest spent heavily in the summer, they now have plenty of squad depth - as such, it can be assumed that they’re looking for some of their younger players to continue their development elsewhere.

Meanwhile, a Bristol City themselves were looking to send a youth player out on loan. The deal has since been completed, with the player moving to a team in the Southern League Division One South.

Bristol City linked with Nottingam Forest’s Ateef Konate

Bristol City are reportedly interested in a loan deal for Ateef Konate at Nottingham Forest, according to David Ornstein at The Athletic. Forest are willing to let the player move out on loan in January, with Ornstein writing ‘that there are high hopes for his career’.

The Robins aren’t the only club who are thought to be interested in Konate, though. Stoke City are also reportedly interested in the 21-year-old, though nothing concrete has been put forward as of yet by either club.

Robins youngster moves out on loan to Melksham

Mac Boyd, one of Bristol City’s youth goalkeeper, has completed a loan move to Melksham in the Southern League Division One South (per Pitching In). Boyd, 19, has previously spent time on loan at Melksham earlier in the campaign - he’s also been out on loan at Frome Town this season.

Melksham boss Mark Collier had this to say on the move: “Mac is well known to us all following a previous successful loan and the opportunity for us to take him was one we had to take.”
