Bristol City are looking for an Alex Scott replacement - and now the wheels are in motion.

Bristol City have made an offer of £1m to Bolton Wanderers for midfielder George Thomason, according to reports.

The Bolton News have reported that it is 'understood' that a bid 'worth around £1 million' has been tabled for the 22-year-old. The Robins have money at their disposal following Alex Scott's £25m move to AFC Bournemouth, and is said to be 'keen' to bring the midfielder to Ashton Gate.

Thomason has been involved in all of Bolton's games this season, starting against hometown club Barrow in the Carabao Cup, as well as coming off the bench against Lincoln City in the league. He made 73 appearances across all competitions for Bolton since joining from non-league outfit Longridge Town in 2020.

A move however is not imminent, as he has been included in their 18-man match-day squad to face Cheltenham Town.

Trotters boss Ian Evatt broke his silence on speculation linking Thomason earlier this week, and said to The Bolton News: “I think we are in a consolidation phase at the moment where we are just taking stock of the market, of what our squad looks like and how they are performing as a team and as individuals.

“At the moment we are relatively happy. We want to improve and I’d be surprised if there wasn’t ins and outs by the end of the window. But, for now, we are not imminent for anything.

“I want to just browse the windows and see what is available for the time being but I am really happy with where we are now.

“The club has a valuation on every player and provided clubs meet that valuation we will allow players to leave, provided that is what they want to do.”
