Manchester City youngster Ryan McGivern is wanted permanently by Bristol City.

The 21-year old defender is on a season-long loan at Ashton Gate and the Robins are keen to keep him after that agreement ends.

McGivern, who played five times for Crystal Palace on loan at the beginning of the season, has made 16 appearances at left-back for the Championship club and it is believed his performances have impressed manager Derek McInnes who wants him permanently at the conclusion of the current campaign.
