2 Bristol City players who may be disappointed not to have left in the January transfer window

The January transfer window threatened to be disappointing for Bristol City but late deals for Anis Mehmeti and Harry Cornick mean the majority of Robins fans were happy when the window closed.

The big news at Championship Club was the sale of Antoine Semenyo, who joined Bournemouth in a deal worth around £10million, while Chris Martin and Timm Klose left Ashton Gate by mutual consent.

At the start of the window City had sold Dan Bentley to Wolves and Ryley Towler to Portsmouth but there may still be some players in Bs3 hoping to continue.

With that in mind, we’ve highlighted the two City players who may be disappointed they didn’t make it out of the January transfer window…

Jay Dasilva

No current City player came closer to leaving in January than Jay Dasilva.

The 24-year-old was reportedly in line for a move to Coventry City, with Birmingham City also keen, but that depended on the landing of the Robins’ AFC Wimbledon defender Jack Currie.

Despite the South West Club making four bids for Currie, the Dons stood their ground and that in turn means Dasilva has stayed at Ashton Gate.

He is in the final six months of his contract and seems destined to be there when that deal expires at the end of the 2022-23 season, but will surely be disappointed he wasn’t able to move to the CBS Arena sooner.

Dasilva sits behind Cam Pring in the pecking order and will continue to play second fiddle unless Pring sustains an injury.

Omar Taylor Clarke

City Academy continues to drive the first team forward and Omar Taylor-Clarke is one of the youngsters knocking on the door.

The 19-year-old attacker made his Nigel Pearson debut in the FA Cup third round replay against Swansea City and was used again from the bench against West Bromwich Albion.

However, Taylor-Clarke may have been hoping to follow in the footsteps of some of his Under-21 teammates by securing a loan move in January.

Sam Pearson, Dylan Kadji and Stefan Bajic have all had a chance to gain more experience at senior level and the Welshman could certainly have benefited from that.

He won’t be too disappointed to remain in BS3 at an exciting point in his young career, but part of him might be a little disappointed that some of his Under-21 team-mates are getting regular minutes elsewhere.
