Premier League clubs reportedly interested in Josh
BRISTOL City may be fielding interest in Josh Brownhill in the final two weeks of the January transfer window.
According to a report by TeamTalk, the Robins will let the former Preston North End midfielder leave if a suitable offer is tabled for the 22-year-old.
Brownhill has been a standout performer for Lee Johnson’s team this campaign - and arguably the most consistent player this season, with three goals and two assists in the Championship so far.
That form has reportedly attracted the attention of Brighton, Leicester City and Bournemouth who are all tracking the central midfielder.
Brownhill signed a new deal only a year ago - a three-year extension to take him through to the summer of 2021 and there could be an option year for the club to extend that by another campaign.
It would require a sizeable offer for the Robins to be tempted into cashing in on a player who recently scored a sublime solo goal to dump Huddersfield out of the FA Cup.
Last year head coach Lee Johnson explained just how far Brownhill can go as the former Barnsley player put pen to paper.
“He has been a fantastic signing for this football club and I believe this is the right place for Josh to continue his development.
“He can earn the right to be a top, top player.”
Bristol City have always said that they would not be able to resist big-money bids if a crazy offer came in that would help the West Country club advance.
Only last week, club CEO Mark Ashton explained the Robins should not be afraid to trade players.
He also explained that there was plenty of interest from England’s top flight in the jewels at Ashton Gate.
