Engvall Loan A 'Possibility'

Gustav Engvall could be in line for a loan move back to his native Sweden – but not immediately due to Tammy Abraham’s injury.

The striker, who joined City from IFK Gothenburg in the summer, has been restricted to just six appearances so far this campaign.

Reports emanating from Sweden linked clubs with a loan move for Engvall, and head coach Lee Johnson responded at the weekly press call today.

“It’s a possibility due to the Scandinavian transfer window still being open,” he told Bristol City Player HD.

“With Tammy’s injury, that does change the dynamic and Gustav retains that fight for competition.

“You never know what’s going to happen in football; it’s a case of protecting Bristol City first and foremost.

“Gustav is desperate to get into the Sweden Under-21 squad for the summer tournament and that’s understandable.

“He needs a run of games and he has to compete to get that here. If he can’t get that here then we’ll have a look at it.

“We hoped he could get that in England and there were a couple of loan offers from League One in the last couple of days before the window shut. He didn’t feel like he wanted to do that and it was a bit rushed to be fair, as can happen at the end of the window.

“We might have to leave it late, we’ll see.”

The club’s 21-goal top scorer Tammy Abraham, on loan from Chelsea, has been ruled out for “two to three weeks” with a thigh injury.
