Blues have made a double bid for Bristol’s Aden Flint and Joe Bryan, Football Insider have revealed.
This news comes after a lot of talk about Flint joining Redknapp at St Andrews and even with Bristol boss Johnson admitting he’s unhappy with Harry’s comments about the proposed move.
It was reported yesterday that Leeds were prepared to hand Flint a pay rise and had enquired about Bryan as a replacement for Charlie Taylor. Now, it appears Blues are set to win the race for the defensive duo.
It is believed a £5million bid has been made for the pair as Redknapp looks to bolster his defensive options even further after signing Marc Roberts from Barnsley.
Flint has established himself as a ‘rock at the back’ for the Robins and he also has an eye for goal, scoring 28 goals in 170 appearances for the club.
He was awarded Player of the Year for the 2015/16 season and helped the club narrowly avoid relegation.
As for left-back Bryan, the 23-year-old has racked up nearly 200 first-team appearances in all competitions. He can also move into left midfield if needed.
Consistently impressive performances on the pitch have led to Bryan being hailed as one of the academy’s best success stories.
With Bristol reluctant to let Flint go, do you think Harry can finally pull this one off by meeting the asking price?
