Scotland striker David Clarkson is set for talks with Bristol City after the Coca-Cola Championship club agreed a fee with Motherwell for a potential transfer.

The 23-year-old was a key man at Fir Park last season, scoring 14 times in 36 starts, but he will open negotiations with the Robins early next week.

The deal has been revealed by both clubs, a statement on City's official website reading: "Bristol City Football Club can confirm it has agreed an undisclosed fee with Motherwell for striker David Clarkson."

It continued: "The club has been given permission to speak to the player and will do so early next week.

"The club will make no further comment at this stage."

Clarkson made his debut for the Clydesdale Bank Premier League club in 2002 as a 16-year-old and was soon a regular in the Motherwell team.

He earned Scotland Under-21 honours and made his debut for the senior team last year in a friendly in the Czech Republic.

Clarkson marked his international bow with a goal and has two caps in total.
