Bristol City are finding it difficult to sign their summer transfer targets.

The Robins have yet to seal a deal for any new players, but goalkeeper Chris Weale is set to join Championship rivals Leicester at the end of the month and strikers Dele Adebola and Peter Styvar also look likely to follow him out of Ashton Gate.

Chief executive Colin Sexstone confirmed the club are looking to sign another keeper and said: "It is like trying to nail jelly to the wall. Some targets are moving on quite well, some are moving and some aren't moving at all."

He added: "We have got two keepers and I am sure Gary will bring in a third young keeper. It wasn't a question of losing Chris Weale.

"He clearly wanted to be a number one and he has taken the opportunity to do that because he probably saw himself as number two to Adriano Basso. I don't think we were too surprised to see him go."
