Bristol City £25m star undergoing Bournemouth medical - reports
BBC journalist Ian Dennis posted on Twitter: ‘Bristol City midfielder Alex Scott having a medical at Bournemouth. If the deal goes through it will be in excess of 20m. Wolves had been interested in the 19-year-old.’
The Robins have been rigid in their £25 million valuation of the ‘Guernsey Grealish’, and it appears that the West Country side’s firm approach will have paid off in terms of the fee they will receive, should the deal go through.
Scott missed Saturday’s opening-day draw with Preston North End with a knee injury picked up in training, which had City fans suspecting that a move away could be imminent.
Nigel Pearson denied claims that Scott would be on his way out, and insisted that he could feature for their trip to Millwall on Saturday - however, it is likely that the midfielder will be a Bournemouth player by then.
Scott contributed seven goals and assists in 49 appearances for the Robins in all competitions last campaign, and also picked up the Championship Young Player of the Year award for his stellar performances in the middle of midfield.
If Scott is to depart, the Robins will lack a spark in midfield, which could have a big impact on their quest to be in the mix for the top six.
