Championship side Bristol City have seen a big bid for Bolton Wanderers forward Zach Clough accepted, according to The Sun’s Alan Nixon.

The 20-year-old forward has been the subject of interest from numerous Championship clubs over recent weeks, but now it appears Bolton may have received a big enough bid to let him leave.

Bolton have left the forward out of their squad for this weekend’s clash against Eastleigh so that he can speak to Bristol City over a potential move to the Championship rivals.

Clough has made 12 appearances for Bolton this season, scoring three goals for the club. Reading and Sheffield Wednesday are two clubs who were previously linked with a move for the player.

Bolton’s current financial situation and uncertainty surrounding the club has led to the Football League placing a transfer embargo for this transfer window, as they failed to submit the required paperwork, and as a result Bolton will have to sell players before they can bring anyone in.

Bristol City previously attempted to strike a deal for Crystal Palace’s Dwight Gayle last summer, but moves for both Gayle and now Burnley forward Andre Gray did not surface.
