Bristol City manager Gary Johnson has confirmed the club have an option to sign on-loan Alvaro Saborio on a permanent basis.

The Costa Rican striker, who has joined from Swiss club Sion until the end of the season, opened his account in the 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe on Saturday.

Johnson revealed the club had been keeping close taps on Saborio, who has two years left to run of his contract at Sion, for 18 months.

"We tried to get him last year but they wanted £3million and that wasn't right at that time," Johnson told the Bristol Evening Post. "He is still going to be (a signing that would need) a transfer fee because he is on loan but we have got the option and we will see how he goes until the end of the season."

He added: "We have already agreed a fee if both parties want to do it."
