Not Interested, Not Doing Scouting Right – Lee Johnson’s Message On Spurs and Liverpool Target


Bristol City head coach Lee Johnson has told Premier League clubs not interested in Lloyd Kelly, who has been linked with Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, they are not doing their recruitment right.

Kelly has shone at Ashton Gate during a tough campaign so far for the Robins and his displays have not gone unnoticed, with scouts flocking to take in his performances.

The 20-year old has made 21 appearances so far in the Championship this season, and has been a key player at the back for Bristol City.

Kelly has predominantly been utilised as a left-back by Johnson, but he has filled in at centre-back in a handful of games this season as well.

Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United have been linked and Johnson feels that Kelly's quality should not surprise Premier League clubs – and if they are not aware of it their homework is not being done right.

"If you’re a Premier League club and you’re not interested in Lloyd Kelly, you’re not doing your recruitment right”, Johnson was quoted as saying by the Bristol Post.

“Twenty years old, playing for England and can play multiple positions.

"Whether someone pushes the button on it is a different matter.

“I guarantee, statistically and with the eye, every Premier League club would’ve had a look."

Kelly came up through the youth ranks at Bristol City and was born in Bristol.

His debut for the Robins came under Johnston, with the defender turning out in the EFL Cup against Plymouth Argyle in 2017.
