Bristol City boss Keith Millen does not expect the club to sign any new players before jetting off on their pre-season tour of Portugal on Wednesday.

Millen has already brought in three new faces in Yannick Bolasie, Ryan Taylor and Neil Kilkenny but says his squad must be trimmed if he is to strengthen further.

"The squad is still too big," Millen told the club's official website.

"We'll be working to fix that. There are a few things ongoing in the background but nothing imminent.


"I don't anticipate anything happening before the [Portugal] tour now."

One of those players expected to depart is third-choice goalkeeper Stephen Henderson, who is now out of contract after turning down the club's offer of a new deal.
