Bristol City's £34.2m squad transfer value compared to Stoke, Blackburn, Norwich, Coventry, Swansea & rivals

An updated look at how all 24 Championship clubs compare for total squad transfer value.

Bristol City's plan in the January transfer window was clear - and that was to invest in to the future.

The Robins made even new signings in January and February. Some signings were made for the under-21's team whilst others joined ready for the first-team. Jack Griffin arrived from Guernsey, and they're the same club that gave Alex Scott his start in senior football before he made a £25m move to Bournemouth last summer, and he was joined by Jack Hooper.

Adam Murphy's long awaited move happened as he joins from St Patrick's Athletic, having initially been a target under the previous manager Nigel Pearson. The Republic of Ireland under-21 international was highly thought of in his homeland and is definitely one for the future, but don't be surprised to see him feature before the campaign is out.

In the middle of the month, Taylor Gardner-Hickman made his loan move from West Brom permanent and we saw Andi Weimann head to The Hawthorn's, where he has potentially said his goodbyes with his contract up in the summer. Scott Twine joined on the same day from Burnley as his loan deal from Hull City was cut short, and there is scope to sign him permanently should City like what they see.

The latter stages of the window saw highly-rated Aldershot Town forward Josh Stokes sign for a reported £250,000 and he has returned to the Shots for the remainder of the season. Max Bird joined from Derby County on deadline day for an undisclosed fee but like Stokes he will remain with the club he was purchased from at the end of the campaign. Finishing off City's business was Adedire Mebude. The 19-year-old joined from Belgian club Westerlo and he made his debut against Southampton on Tuesday night.

Bristol City have had their fair share of producing players and selling them at a premium, but there will come a point where they will want to be competitive and challenging for the play-offs. Nevertheless, with the window shut we can now see how City's apparent squad transfer value compares to their league rivals.

TransferMarkt, which judges things such as contract length and player performance have valued all members of the first-team. Here's how the Robins compare to the likes of Stoke, Blackburn, Norwich, Coventry, Swansea and others.
