Bristol City have taken highly rated Millwall youngster Mikael Ndjoli on trial according to the Bristol Post.

The 18 year old signed for The Lions as a schoolboy and has graduated from Under 16 to Under 18 level at The Den.

Ndjoli possesses electric pace and started his career as a winger but has since been developed as a striker by the Millwall coaching staff. The player has had an excellent season for his club netting 20 goals in 24 appearances for The Lions’ Under 18 and Under 21 sides.

The player’s hugely impressive performances have not gone unnoticed and Bristol City could face competition from Premier League pair Arsenal and Crystal Palace for Ndjoli’s signature according to reports.

In February, Ndjoli’s emphatic strike in a development league fixture against Colchester United won the League Football Education goal of the month award.

Last week Millwall made the shock announcement that Mikael Ndjoli is one of five youngsters who will not be offered professional deals by the club. Ndjoli’s summer exit from The Den could turn out to be good news for other clubs who are tracking the striker.

Ndjoli featured for Bristol City’s Under 21s in their development league fixture against Huddersfield Town at Failand this afternoon. The player won a penalty for The Robins but missed the spot kick as Bristol City fell to a 4-1 defeat.
