Gray scored 18 goals last season for the Bees following a £500,000 switch from Luton Town and has been the subject of interest from Hull and West Ham.

According to Talksport Brentford had been ready to offer the former Shrewsbury Town player a new deal but City's offer was too good to turn down.

Gray hasn't yet agreed personal terms and City haven't yet commented.

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.

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

Bristol City sign Spurs player Ryan Fredericks

Bristol City have announced this morning that they have signed Tottenham Hotspurs wing-back Ryan Fredericks.

The 22-year-old has been signed under a three-year contract, for an undisclosed fee, having successfully passed a medical today.

Fredericks has made four appearances for the first team at White Heart Lane, all in the Europa League.

He’ll provide us with lots of pace in an area where we needed more competition; that wing-back role is a hard shift game after game over the course of the season.

He’s had a good grounding at Tottenham and enjoyed a good spell on loan at Middlesbrough last season. I’m sure he will fit in with our existing group of players.

– Manager Steve Cotterill

Fans to stay away from City's game at Hillsborough

Bristol City fans have expressed outrage at the price of tickets for the side's first away game back in the Championship.

The board of Bristol City's Supporters Club & Trust have decided to stay away because they think £39 is extortionate.

Nobody’s calling for a boycott, we just think it is a step too far. We think many City fans will vote likewise and choose not to go. Maybe in that way Sheffield Wednesday will get the message that this is unreasonable. After all, it will only cost Reading fans £25 when they go to Hillsborough. Where’s the sense in that?

– Stuart Rogers, Bristol City Supporters Club & Trust

A spokesperson for Bristol City has issued this response

Ticket prices for this fixture are set by the home club and not by Bristol City FC. We will always look to set fair prices for supporters at Ashton Gate as we look to attract as many fans along as possible to support the team.

– BCFC spokesperson

The game will take place at Hillsborough on Saturday 8 August.
