The transfer picture will become clearer on Monday over whether George Thomason will be moving from Bolton Wanderers to Bristol City.

Bristol City should find out Bolton Wanderers’ decision over George Thomason in the next 24 hours, according to reports.

The Bolton News report that Thomason’s future at the University of Bolton Stadium ‘should be decided in the next 24 hours’ after a £1m offer was reported on Saturday.

Bolton News’ report say that the Robins have met their valuation of the player, and that the bid carries several bonus elements. Nigel Pearson has some money to spend following Alex Scott’s £25m sale to 

AFC Bournemouth and his transfer team has identified Thomason as a potential replacement.

Thomason featured for Bolton in the last 10 minutes over Wade Elliott’s Cheltenham Town, making his second substitute appearance of the season. The 22-year-old has only started in the Carabao Cup this season for Bolton, and despite speculation linking him with a move to Ashton Gate, he was involved in their match on Saturday.

“We have had a significant bid for him but that’s as far as it goes for now,” Bolton boss Ian Evatt said to The Bolton News following Bolton’s 3-0 win over Cheltenham Town.

“We have received an offer and there are conversations happening behind the scenes. It should be resolved over the next 48 hours.”

To date, Thomason has made made 74 appearances for Bolton, scoring two goals and registering three assists. He has played 35 times in League One and 24 times in their League Two promotion-winning campaign.

Meanwhile Bristol City are also said to be in talks with St Patrick’s Athletic for their talented 18-year-old midfielder Adam Murphy. City are ‘leading the race’ for Murphy who was scouted by Brighton and invited for a trial with Manchester City last year, in what could be an exciting player in the future.

Murphy’s contract expires at the end of the League of Ireland season, and if he were to join City in January, then the Pats would be entitled compensation. Talks are positive with the Ireland club, and a bid could be imminent as they look to unearth the next gem for their team.
