According to League of Ireland, Lee Johnson’s side are thought to be monitoring Cork City’s midfielder Conor McCormack.

Meanwhile, City have been repeatedly linked with a move for Preston North End striker Jordan Hugill, with Leeds United, Birmingham City and Aston Villa also keeping tabs of the frontman, as highlighted by the Post.

BBC Sport report on Scott Golbourne’s hip injury requiring surgery. The defender, who has been on loan with MK Dons, is set to be ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.
