Exclusive: Bristol City attacker agrees to join Swindon Town next season

Bristol City winger Jonny Smith has agreed terms to join Swindon Town on a season-long loan, Football Insider understands.

As revealed by Football Insider earlier this month, Wycombe made a bid to sign the 23-year-old after his impressive form on loan at Oldham Athletic during the 2019/20 campaign.

However, a source at Ashton Gate has told Football Insider that the Liverpool-born forward is set to head out temporarily again to join League One outfit Swindon for the upcoming season.

Smith, who is yet to make a first-team appearance for Bristol City since joining from Wrexham in 2016, has spent most of his career out on loan at a variety of clubs.

He joined Cheltenham Town in a half-season move shortly after his move to Ashton Gate, while he spent the entirety of the 2017/18 campaign at National League side AFC Fylde.

The majority of his Football League experience has come during spells at Tranmere Rovers and Oldham, with a total of 68 League Two appearances and a single fourth-tier play-off outing under his belt.

He scored a total of 11 goals and contributed six assists in 32 appearances for the Latics last season and his fine form is set to earn him a move to League One with newly-promoted Swindon.

The Robins were named as League Two champions last season as a result of their points-per-game record, having finished level with Crewe Alexandra who had played one game more.

Bristol City are set to face Swindon in a pre-season friendly on Saturday in what will be the first M4 derby since 2015.
