Celtic, Burnley & Middlesbrough ponder move for Bristol City full back

Bristol City left back Joe Bryan is attracting serious transfer attention from a trio of clubs, according to the Mirror. Celtic, Burnley and Middlesbrough are all said to be plotting a move for the talented wide man, who offers both defensive and offensive qualities.

The 23-year-old has played over 150 times for the Ashton Gate club since making his first-team debut all the way back in March 2012, during a home victory over Leicester City. Bryan is now a target for clubs at a higher level, and he could be about to test himself at the next league above for the first time.

Besides brief loan spells with both Bath City and Plymouth Argyle, Bryan has played all of his football with the Ashton Gate club. However it is believed that the Sky Bet Championship side are willing to part way with the player, for the right price. The Robins are said to rate the player at £3million. Should sides like Burnley from the Premier League, and Celtic, who soon take part in Champions League qualifiers, Lee Johnson will be hopeful of at least receiving a decent fee for the player. There is Scott Golbourne on the books with the club, but he fell out of favour last season so Bryan would probably be only allowed to leave if a replacement can be found.

Burnley have also been linked with a move for Charlie Taylor too, who is set to depart Leeds United this summer. Therefore, Sean Dyche is clearly on the lookout for an improvement in this area. Celtic do have the talented Kieran Tierney is this area, so unless he is leaving, Brendan Rodgers doesn’t definitely need to strengthen this area. Garry Monk wants to add his own stamp of authority at the Riverside Stadium, but George Friend, the current left back, is among the best in the league in this position too.
