Media Watch - January 12th

Here's a round-up of the latest online and newspaper media coverage about City.

The Bristol Post report on City’s upcoming Sky Bet Championship clash with Leeds United being selected for live broadcast by Sky Sports, which has subsequently pushed the Fulham and Cardiff City fixtures back 24 hours to aid recovery.

In transfer news, Sky Sports are under the impression that Liverpool winger Ryan Kent is closing in on a loan deal at Ashton Gate.

Jamie Paterson's arrowed strike against Sheffield United has been shortlisted for the Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month award for December. City's attacking playmaker goes head to head with David Brooks (Sheffield United) and Adam Reach (Sheffield Wednesday) respectively for the goal of the month accolade. Supporters can vote via Sky Sports.

Speaking after the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg, Lee Johnson explained to the Post that he wouldn’t hesitate in signing players from the Australian A-League, having “been fortunate to work with Australian players as a player and as a coach”.

Meanwhile, the Mirror have written a piece suggesting City’s performance at the Etihad Stadium should be seen as a wake-up call to Premier League clubs, particularly those who take Manchester City’s dominance for granted.

Finally, Gary Johnson told Gloucestershire Live that the experience of watching City come up against Manchester City earlier in the week was “absolute class”.
