Here is a look at the latest news coming out of the club today...

More on Bamba’s situation

BristolWorld have revealed that Sol Bamba is training with Bristol City following his departure from Middlesbrough.

The centre-back was on the verge of signing for Swindon Town in League Two earlier this summer in a player-coach capacity.

However, he rejected the chance to join the Wiltshire club in the end, as reported by the Swindon Advertiser at the time, and is now being looked at by Nigel Pearson.

Former Robin catching eye

Callum O’Dowda left Ashton Gate at the end of the last campaign when his contract expired.

He was subsequently snapped up by fellow second tier outfit Cardiff City on a free transfer and has since been a hit with the Bluebirds.

The winger will be lining up against his former club this weekend.

O’Dowda has received high praise from Irish sports website Balls.ie, who believe he is ‘forcing’ his way back into the Republic of Ireland national team set-up under Stephen Kenny.
