The January transfer window has slammed shut and for Bristol City it has been a relatively quiet month.

The Robins weren’t expected to do much business given just prior to the window they had reported record losses of just shy of £40m.

Instead it was a case of new deals with young stars Cameron Pring and Ayman Benarous both having their contracts extended as City continue to build around a youthful revolution.

There was one bit of a business though as season-ending injury to Nathan forced City to dip their toes into the free agent market and sign Timm Klose.

Klose had been without a club after leaving Norwich City and brought some much-needed cover.

The 33-year-old was thrust into his debut two days after his signing and is at Ashton Gate until the end of the season.

Whilst the window is shut, additions can be made to the Under-23’s team and they are in a good position to add another talented midfielder in the mould of Alex Scott.

Guernsey’s Ben Acey, who was on trial for two weeks, has impressed the Robins enough for them to begin negotiations.

It is expected that should he sign he wouldn’t return on loan and instead would remain training and playing at the High Performance Centre.

There was some Deadline Day interest in Antoine Semenyo, Kasey Palmer and Nahki Wells but all three remained at the club after all offers were rejected.

In terms of confirmed outgoings, all of the departures were loans with most being young players needing first-team minutes though there was a departure from the senior team.

A deal that transpired quickly was Tyreeq Bakinson’s loan to Ipswich Town. The midfielder had only signed a new deal in November and had made 13 appearances in the Championship.

He was shipped out though after Nigel Pearson was keen not to disrupt the harmony of the dressing room.

“He’s a player who unfortunately just wants to play on his own terms,” said the City boss. It’s not something I particularly want so he can go.

"I’m not wasting energy on negativity, I don’t invest time on that, I’m not just saying it. If you ask people who work with me they’ll say exactly the same thing, I don’t waste energy on negativity, it drives me mad.”

Owura Edwards was recalled from his loan from Exeter City where he had mainly been a substitute. Edwards was quickly sent back out but this time to Colchester who are battling at the bottom of League Two. So far he has made two appearances and scored in their defeat to Sutton United.

Another young player in Saikou Janneh departed too as he linked up with former City boss Steve Cotterill at Shrewsbury Town. The 22-year-old has so far played four games for the Shrews, all as a substitute but has yet to find the net, though he did make a cameo against Liverpool at Anfield.

Sam Pearson, who was in and around the first-team last year and had a run of games towards the end of the season got a much needed move to the Scottish Championship. The Wales Under-21 striker said he needed a ‘change of scenery’ after falling out of the first-team picture.

He’s with Inverness Caledonian Thistle until the end of the season and has been involved in their last two games as they chase promotion to the top flight of Scottish football.

The last departure from B36 is Louis Britton who today was announced as a loan signing for Waterford and will remain there until the end of June, which is the same month as his contract expires.

Despite trialling with League of Ireland side Derry City, scoring on two occasions, he has linked up with the second tier side instead.
