Ekstrand Poised For January Exit

Joel Ekstrand has been told he can leave Bristol City during the January transfer window.

The former Watford defender, 27, has made just two appearances for the club since signing on a one-year deal in September.

The Swede has struggled with injury and illness, and has now been informed he is free to sign for another club this month.

Meanwhile, head coach Lee Johnson has revealed Taylor Moore could move out on loan during January.

“We’ve had interest in Taylor from a number of clubs,” said Johnson. “It has to be right for the football club and Taylor but it’s likely he’ll go out on loan to get some games, just like we have done with Diego (De Girolamo).”

With the transfer window just two days old, City have already been linked with a number of players in the media.

Johnson added: “It’s only right that we talk about things once they’re completed but we are certainly hopeful of securing a few deals quickly; one certainly is imminent.”
