Newcastle and Everton linked with January move for ‘the best left-back in the Championship’

According to TeamTalk, highly-rated Bristol City defender Joe Bryan is interesting both ourselves and Everton ahead of the January transfer window – the man rated as ‘the best left-back in the Championship’.

Benitez has made it known that he’d like to add to his options at left-back (with Dummett being the only naturally left-sided full-back at his disposal at present), so Bryan’s form at Bristol City could well have caught his eye.

The 24-year-old has been a big part of Bristol City’s strong start to the Championship with the Robins sitting in 3rd place in the second tier – just 4 points from the automatic promotion places.

The report claims that Bryan has been watched by both Newcastle and Everton scouts on a ‘number of occasions’ this season, with both said to be weighing up a January move.

He has 4 goals and 2 assists this season and was the man of the match in Bristol City’s quarter-final cup win over Manchester United last night. Here’s his superb goal that gave them a 1-0 lead:

Fans were clearly impressed by what they saw last night:

A stunning goal and stunning performance, but one that may only make him harder for us to sign in January if our ‘interest’ does turn out to be true.
