The 5 Bristol City players likely to exit Ashton Gate from June onwards

Now that the January transfer window has officially ended, the Championship appears to be headed for an entertaining conclusion.

Naturally, with Liam Manning leading the team, Bristol City will be anticipating their first full summer under the new manager.

Without a doubt, Manning will have to make a lot of difficult choices since some players have contracts expiring at the end of June and others could just want to go on.

In light of this, we’ve selected five Bristol City players below who may leave Ashton Gate in the summer.

Andy King

One player who may be leaving Ashton Gate this summer is Andy King, an accomplished midfielder for Bristol City.

This summer, the 35-year-old’s contract expires, and the Robins and I have not yet reached an agreement on a renewal.

That seemed improbable as well, considering King’s limited playing time this season.

In fact, the midfield player has only made seven appearances in the Championship, and he has only ever once—during 2024—served as a substitute.

Everything seems to be pointing to a summertime exit.

Duncan Idehen

Duncan Idehen is another Bristol City player who appears certain to leave this summer.

This season, the 21-year-old has made three appearances for Yeovil on a short-term loan rather than playing for the senior club.

Given that his contract expires at the end of June, the centre defender may leave the team permanently. Still, it wouldn’t be shocking to see a one-year contract agreed to.

But in that case, there will undoubtedly be a loan agreement for consistent playing time away from Ashton Gate.

Raekwon Nelson

Raekwon Nelson is another Bristol City player who might be considering a summer loan elsewhere.

Although the 18-year-old is still relatively early in his career, he has already started 14 games for the club this season in the Championship as a substitute.

Sadly, he has also yet to play for the team on the pitch.

Because of this, if the 18-year-old isn’t given any more minutes in BS3, he will undoubtedly look into loan options in order to play football on a regular basis the next season.

Haydon Roberts, a defender for the Robins, is undoubtedly another player who could leave in the summer, possibly on loan.

Roberts has only made 11 Championship appearances for the team this year, and he recently acknowledged that he had considered going out on loan in January.

“In my opinion, I should have been playing more, but that’s the situation we find ourselves in; if we weren’t in this business, we wouldn’t be here.” Roberts stated to BristolLive.

Undoubtedly, another player who could depart in the summer, perhaps on loan, is the Robins’ defender Haydon Roberts.

Roberts has only made 11 appearances for the squad in the Championship this season, and he recently admitted that he had thought about moving on loan in January.

“In my opinion, I should have been playing more, but that’s the situation we find ourselves in; if we weren’t in this business, we wouldn’t be here.” According to Roberts, BristolLive.

Andreas Weimann

And last but not least, Andreas Weimann is the last player who might be able to get out of Ashton Gate.

Although the Austrian joined West Brom on loan, he technically left previously, and the Baggies may sign him permanently this summer.


Weimann told the Shropshire Star when he joined with WBA, “There was a clause in my contract which I think the club (Bristol City) didn’t want to trigger but I have been around long enough to know that’s football,” so it sounds like he’s targeting that.

“I’m happy to be here right now. I suppose it is up to me to demonstrate my abilities till the end of the season. I just want to show what I can do until the conclusion of the season, and then we can see where it goes from there. Hopefully, if everything goes well, we can prolong it.

“I have it in my possession. I can’t expect to be offered a contract if I don’t perform well. We will see what happens if I perform and if it is successful. I’m prepared to start right now and get the minutes.

It will be intriguing to observe Weimann’s performance at The Hawthorns.
