Bristol City youngster Josh Brownhill has been linked with a move to Championship rivals Leeds United. The Robins winger recently agreed to a new deal at Ashton Gate but it appears that the new deal was not enough to keep away the rumours from resurfacing.
Leeds had been previously linked with the youngster but a move never transpired. They have now once again been associated with a move for the talented midfielder and a transfer in the next summer could be possible.
Bristol are right now in the mix for promotion with the Robins playing some excellent attacking football under manager Lee Johnson. Their win last night over Leeds United put the side in the sixth position with 53 points on board from 32 games. If the Robins can hold on to their table position, they will qualify for the playoffs.
Bristol have put together an exciting team with the likes of Josh Brownhill, Korey Smith, Joe Bryan and Bobby Reid playing free-flowing football. The young bunch of footballers have gelled well and should Bristol qualify for the riches of the Premier League next season, Johnson will not want to lose any player, let alone the standout performers like Brownhill.
Brownhill made his footballing debut at Preston North End before being loaned out to Barnsley. The 22-year-old central midfielder moved to Bristol City in 2016 and has been at the club since. Brownhill played under Paul Heckingbottom while on loan at Barnsley and it can be now realized why the rumours of Brownhill moving to Leeds may have surfaced. The former Barnsley coach is now the manager at Leeds United after the Whites parted ways with Thomas Christiansen.
Leeds faced yet another disappointing result yesterday when they were held to 2-2 draw against Bristol City and needed two late goals to earn them a point. They are now winless in nine matches and have lost six of them. Christiansen’s sacking has failed to alert the team to the danger of their falling standards.
Despite parting ways with Garry Monk, Leeds were enjoying a decent season until January and were well in contention to qualify for the playoffs come May. However, their recent wretched run of results have left them well off the pace and they will now look to save their season before mounting another assault next time.
The team is well loaded in the midfield but the area of concern remains in the final third. Pierre-Michel Lasogga’s loan spell comes to an end this season and Leeds will be a key man short up front. Hence, although having a player like Brownhill will definitely add quality to their side, Leeds has issues in attack to solve first and that is what they should be prioritizing.
