Exclusive: Newcastle, Leeds among suitors as Robins bid to keep star

Bristol City are locked in talks with midfield ace Josh Brownhill over a new deal to try and fend off Premier League and Championship interest, sources have told TEAMtalk.

The 21-year-old, who arrived at Ashton Gate form Preston in 2016, has become an integral part of Lee Johnson’s side – but his current deal expires in the summer.

The Robins do have an option for an extra 12-months on his deal, but they are desperate to extend his stay beyond that among a flurry of interest in the in-form star, as they look to secure their place in the Premier League next season.

Bournemouth, Leicester, Burnley and Newcastle have all registered an interest from the Premier League, whilst Leeds and Derby are also keen, according to our sources.
