Pearson knows he needs far more quality in his squad to compete in an ever-improving Championship.

And new signings will be key for the Robins if they want any hope of achieving a top half finish in the coming campaign.

With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest news and transfer rumours surrounding Ashton Gate and beyond:

According to Football Insider, the 20-year-old is likely to leave on loan for next season, keen to secure regular first-team football.

And he does not look likely to be short of options, with Lincoln City, Tranmere Rovers and Salford City all said to have expressed an interest in a loan deal.

Cardiff are still going...

Cardiff are not messing around in this summer window.

The Bluebirds have now completed their third signing in two days, wrapping up their eighth signing of the summer so far.

Ryan Allsop, who impressed in goal for Derby County last season, has joined on a free transfer, penning a two-year deal.

Speaking of goalkeepers, Burnley could lose star goalkeeper Nick Pope following their relegation to the Championship.

According to Sky Sports, Newcastle United are expressing an interest in Pope after moving on from Manchester United’s Dean Henderson, who could well be joining Nottingham Forest instead.

The report claims Pope wants to stay in the Premier League and would likely welcome a deal.

The English stopper has been a consistent performer for the Clarets, so it would be no surprise if he returns to the top-flight this summer.
