Bristol City could face a huge fight to keep hold of their key players during the January transfer window according to the Bristol Post.

Chief operating officer Mark Ashton believes that The Robins will receive offers from other clubs for their stars with Bristol City’s impressive squad building coming under the microscope of both rival and higher division clubs.

Bristol City spent the summer trying to hang on to goal machine Jonathan Kodjia but Aston Villa’s huge potential £15 million transfer deal proved to be too much for The Robins to turn down with the transfer window coming to an end.

The Robins currently occupy the final Play Off place in the SkyBet Championship table after recording three wins from their first five league matches and other clubs will naturally look at players from clubs who continue to excel in their respective divisions.

Several players have been linked with moves away from Ashton Gate throughout the summer and Bristol City’s promotion hopes could depend on the club’s ability to retain their quality players while attracting the right players to the South West in January.

The summer transfer window saw some astonishing big money transfer bids submitted by a number of SkyBet Championship clubs making it tough for Bristol City to compete however finding the right player at the right price will be key to the club’s success in the next window.
