Wes Burns on loan from Bristol City

Wes Burns has joined Sky Bet League One club Fleetwood Town on a youth loan from Bristol City.

He's made 17 appearances so far this season, scoring once – but most of these have come from the substitutes bench, and the loan will allow the 21-year-old to gain regular match action.

It will be great for Wes to go and get regular League One games for a good club that play football the right way.

I’m keen to get our homegrown players as much exposure to league football as possible, both in our first team and by utilising the loan system.

– Head coach Lee Johnson

Burns has previously spent time on loan at Forest Green Rovers, Oxford United and Cheltenham Town.

The youth loan runs until May 8th, with City having a recall option after 28 days.


City pin hopes on defender as they welcome back former player

Bristol City are pinning their Championship hopes on a defender who began his career at the club a decade ago.

Scott Golbourne joins the club from Wolverhampton Wanderers, as they seek to add to their squad ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.

They've secured the signing of the Wolves left back for an undisclosed fee.

The 27-year-old first joined City as a schoolboy, and was a product of the academy before he made his debut at the age of 17.

After a brief spell in the first team, left to join Reading ten years ago and has since had a host of stints at Exeter City, Barnsley and Wolves.

But now the Bristolian is now back at Ashton Gate.

A cousin of another former defender, Matthew Hill, Golbourne has penned a two-and-a-half-year contract after undergoing a medical at Failand.

Scott is a Bristol lad and that’s important to us.

He’s a left-back. At the moment we’ve either got Joe Bryan, who’s more of an attacking force, or Derrick Williams, who is more of a defensive type. It’s about getting that balance in between.

Scott has been here before, he’s athletic and someone we need for this football club.

– John Pemberton, City interim boss
