Bristol City are set to smash their transfer record by signing striker Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace.

Sky Sports News are reporting that a £6 million fee has been agreed between the two clubs, which could rise to £8 million with add-ons.

City were promoted to the Championship as League One winners in May but have been left largely frustrated so far this summer in the transfer market, despite already bringing in forward Jonathan Kodjia for €3 million

Gayle, 25, joined Palace from Peterborough in the summer of 2013 and has scored 18 goals in 24 starts.

Earlier this morning, City confirmed a season-loan for Leicester City goalkeeper Ben Hamer.

Captain says Bristol City are confident of success this season

Bristol Cityare making final preparations for the start of the new football season and life in the Championships.

After promotion from League One last season, Steve Cotterill's side will play Sheffield Wednesday this weekend.

Captain Aaron Wilbraham says the players are confident of further success this year.

Bristol City sign Aston Villa player Callum Robinson

Bristol City have signed Aston Villa forward Callum Robinson for the new season.

The 20-year-old has joined the squad ahead of the clubs opening game against Sheffield Wednesday.

He has been a regular England youth international and is a product of Aston Villa’s Academy.

He's made five appearances for the Villa first team to date, as a substitute and last season he was playing with Preston North End.

He’s the type of player we’ve been looking to bring in, someone who can play wide left in a three or in one of the striking roles.

Callum is a young player who will bring bundles of pace and energy, similar to Ryan Fredericks. He’s also brave and has a knack for nicking a goal.

I’m delighted we’ve been able to secure the signing of two young players in Ryan and Callum in time for the first game of the season and wish them luck for the campaign ahead.

– Manager Steve Cotterill
