Sean O’Driscoll has revealed City have accepted a bid from Blackpool for striker Steven Davies.
An undisclosed fee has been agreed with the Seasiders after the Ashton Gate club turned down offers from Millwall for the same player, who struck 13 goals last season.
Davies is now free to discuss personal terms with Blackpool.
Speaking after the 1-0 victory over Reading, O’Driscoll told Bristol City Player
: “Every player at this club wants to play in the highest division they can – some of them will have that opportunity, some of them won’t.
“First and foremost the club has to accept a bid for that to happen, which in this case we have, so the player is free to talk to Blackpool.
“Nobody’s pushing him out of the door, but we’ve accepted a bid because we think it’s a fair one.”
