Bristol City are set to send back injury prone striker Gustav Engvall to Sweden on a loan deal, according to reports from the Bristol Post.
Having sold star man Jonathan Kodjia to Aston Villa for big money, Bristol City needed to bring in a quality replacement and many thought that the Robins were able to pull off a major coup by securing the services of Swedish international Gustav Engvall.
Engvall had managed to impress in Sweden with IFK Goteborg and Bristol being able to attract the services of one of the best young players in the Scandinavian country was viewed as a very good signing for just £2 million.
Engvall set for Sweden return
Unfortunately though, Engvall’s time at Ashton Gate so far s been ravaged by injury problems and due to his constant fitness troubles, the 20-year-old has appeared in only a meagre 40 minutes of action throughout the course of the current Championship campaign.
Although Engvall recently returned to full fitness, he has not been able to dislodge Tammy Abraham as the club’s main striker and now if reports from the Bristol Post are to be believed, manager Lee Johnson is planning to send out the young Swede back to his home country – with Djurgarden showing interest in his services.
