Bristol City are set to lose defender Adam Webster with a host of Premier League clubs ready to pounce and with the Robins having named their asking price, we can reveal.

The 24-year-old only joined from Ipswich last summer in a £3.5million deal and as a replacement for Aden Flint, who joined Middlesbrough in a £7million deal.

However, Webster has proved a huge success at Ashton Gate and we can reveal the Robins are ready to cash in – and are likely to treble their money after setting a price that won’t be too prohibitive to Premier League sides.

We can reveal City are set to accept offers of around £12million, and that Leicester, Burnley, Newcastle, Southampton and Watford are amongst those ready to make a move, having already registered their interest in Webster.

The Robins have already sold Lloyd Kelly to Bournemouth for £13million this summer and could be set to bolster their coffers to the tune of a combined £25m if Webster moves on.

Webster has made 47 appearances for Lee Johnson’s side, scoring three times.
