According to TEAMtalk, Bristol City have told star man Josh Brownhill that he can leave the club this January, providing that they receive an acceptable bid for the midfielder.
Premier League trio Leicester City, Brighton and Hove Albion and Bournemouth are lining up a move for Bristol City midfielder Josh Brownhill, who has reportedly been told he can leave this January.
Brownhill has impressed throughout the first half of the Championship season, playing an important role in Lee Johnson’s side once again. Now, with Premier League sides keeping an eye on the midfielder, it is believed that Bristol City will let him leave if they receive an acceptable offer.
The 23-year-old started his youth career with Warrington Town before joining the academy at Premier League giants Manchester United. He left Manchester United for Preston North End in 2012, where he went on to make his breakthrough as a senior player.
The midfielder spent three years at Deepdale with Preston, where he played 64 times and enjoyed a successful loan spell at Barnsley in the second half of the 2015/16 season.
Upon his impressive spell at Preston, Brownhill moved to Bristol City in 2016, where he has gone on to become a mainstay in the Robins’ side. He has notched up 110 appearances for Bristol City in his time at Ashton Gate. However, it seems that his time there is set to come to an end.
Brownhill could become the latest in a line of Bristol City players to leave for big money fees. Bobby Reid, Aden Flint and Joe Bryan have all moved away from the Championship side recently and it could be a matter of time before Brownhill joins that list.
