Bristol City manager Lee Johnson may make use of the loan market if he is unable to make further permanent additions to his squad during the January transfer window according to the Bristol Post.

The Robins have been one of the most active clubs in the transfer market so far with City boss Johnson securing no less than three new signings.

Bristol City have signed midfielder Jens Hegeler from German Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin, Bosnian international striker Milan Djuric and Preston North End defender Bailey Wright so far in the current transfer window and Robins boss Johnson is hoping to bring further new faces to the club in the coming weeks.

With the January transfer window having a reputation of being notoriously difficult to deal in, Johnson has admitted that the club will not be held to ransom when making moves to sign players and The Robins boss has confirmed that he will make use of the loan market should City be priced out of permanent deals for potential new signings.

Bristol City handed debuts to all three of their new signings in their FA Cup Third Round fixture against Fleetwood Town at Ashton Gate on Saturday. The Robins failed to beat their lower division opponents and now face a replay at Highbury following a goalless draw against The Cod Army.
