Ex-Bristol City man close to new job, Burnley eye winger.

Bristol City return to the action this evening at home to Sheffield United. The Robins drew 1-1 last time out against Swansea City at Ashton Gate.

Nigel Pearson’s side are currently 14th in the table and are six points off the play-offs. Here is a look at some of the latest news from around the Championship...

Hull City close in on new boss

Hull City are edging closer to the appointment of former Bristol City player Liam Rosenior as their manager. The Athletic have reported that the 38-year-old has ‘verbally agreed’ to take over at the MKM Stadium.

Andy Dawson has been in interim charge for the past seven games since Shota Arveladze’s sacking and has won three times. Rosenior spent five years as a player with the East Yorkshire outfit and made 161 appearances in all competitions.

Burnley eye winger

Burnley are reportedly interested in Marseille winger Konrad de la Fuente. Estadio Deportivo claim the Clarets are keen to lure the United States international to Turf Moor to further bolster their attacking options.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Olympiacos but has struggled to make an impact in Greece. He was on the books at Barcelona from 2013 to 2020.

Stoke City coach leaves

Stoke City goalkeeper David Rouse has left the club. The 46-year-old joined the Potters back in 2019 under former boss Michael O’Neill but has now decided to cut ties with them.

He had spells as a player with the likes of Stockport County and Macclesfield Town before hanging up his gloves in 2007. The Essex-born man has since worked all over in the world in countries such as the United Arab Emirates and Chinese Taipei.
