The Bristol Post has exclusively revealed that Russian Premier League side Rostov have again expressed an interest in Bristol City defender Hordur Magnusson. Whilst that is the case, it is believed that the Icelandic international is not interested in making the move.
The 24-year-old is currently enjoying a run in the side, which is the main reason for him not seeking a transfer. As long as that remains the case, and Lee Johnson selects him, he should stay put. Despite that, Rostov are still expected to submit a bid for Magnusson, who moved to Ashton Gate from Juventus back in 2016.
In addition to Rostov, it is understood that Italian Serie A side SPAL are keen on taking the player on a loan deal for the remainder of the campaign. Similarly to the other link, the player is not understood to be seeking any kind of move away, unless he loses his place in the starting eleven. With a World Cup on the horizon and Iceland firmly a part of that, the former Cesena loanee is understandably keen to play in the run up to the showpiece event in world football.
With Ryan Kent joining on loan from Liverpool, that could potentially see Magnusson drop to the bench. Joe Bryan is currently enjoying a run in the side in a left winger position. He is a full back by trade however, and is normally first choice in that area. Kent could come in ahead of him, meaning Magnusson, who has a long throw weapon, may miss out. If that were to occur, he may focus on a move elsewhere.
