Bristol City manager Lee Johnson will sit down with trialist Aaron Pierre early this week to discuss his future at the club according to the Bristol Post.

The 24-year-old Southall born centre-back is currently a free agent after his contract with Sky Bet League Two club Wycombe Wanderers expired last month and the player has been handed a trial by Bristol City.

Pierre has featured for The Robins in pre-season friendly outings at both Guernsey and Bristol Manor Farm, generally performing well in those matches and it has now been reported that Robins boss Johnson is ready to make a decision on the defender’s future with the player having a real chance of earning himself a deal with the Sky Bet Championship club.

Former Brentford apprentice Pierre made just three senior appearances for his boyhood club and found himself loaned out to both Cambridge United and Wycombe Wanderers. After impressing at Adams Park, Pierre signed a permanent deal with The Chairboys in May 2014 and the defender went on to make 149 appearances for Wanderers, scoring 10 goals.

Pierre has built a reputation as being one of the best defenders in English football’s fourth tier in recent seasons and the player may be ready to make his mark in the Sky Bet Championship.
