The market value of every Bristol City player ahead of the summer transfer window - gallery

How each Bristol City player is valued in a season of improvement in the Championship

Bristol City are continuing to improve under Nigel Pearson, and their current position of 14th, would be an improvement on the positions they've secured under him before.

After succeeding Dean Holden in 20/21, the Robins finished 18th, and then in his first full campaign they earned a 17th-placed finish. This is Pearson's second of three full seasons, and after a good FA Cup run that brought them a windfall from playing Manchester City, there's a hope that they can at least finish in mid-table.

Twice this season, City have gone on long unbeaten runs, but unfortunately it's not made them contenders for promotion. They're currently 12 points off the top six, and 10 points above the relegation zone. There have been plus points of this campaign with the emergence of Sam Bell and Tommy Conway, whilst Alex Scott has continued to impress.

In the summer transfer window, City didn't pay a transfer fee, signing Kal Naismith, Mark Sykes, Stefan Bajic and Kane Wilson all on free transfers. The January window did allow for some spending however with Antoine Semenyo's sale to Bournemouth, allowing them to splash the cash and sign Anis Mehmeti and Harry Cornick from Wycombe Wanderers and Championship rivals Luton Town.

The squad seems to be in a good place with an emphasis on good attacking options, but there are still some positions they're light in, most specifically in defence, with several injuries proving costly over the last few months. It's a situation to be addressed in the summer, but right now they're dealing with what they have.

Up to four new signings could come in this summer, but we could also see some big money sales with Scott a man in demand. City's previous business model was relying on selling players for profit each summer, and it worked up until recently.
