Bristol City facing a wait for Suso move
Brendan Rodgers holds the key to Bristol City's hopes of landing Spanish teenager Jesus Fernandez Saez from Liverpool.
The 18-year-old midfielder known as Suso is being targeted by Robins boss Derek McInnes.
Although City's manager sounded out the player's agent last month regarding the possibility of taking Suso on a season-long loan, further progress has been impossible given recent events at Anfield with Rodgers replacing sacked Kenny Dalglish.
Suso's agent has yet to speak to Rodgers regarding the midfielder's future and it now appears likely any decision will be delayed until after Liverpool's players report back for pre-season training in mid-July.

McInnes is also having to be patient in his pursuit of Coventry City defender Richard Keogh.
City had an initial bid, believed to be around the £250,000 mark, rejected by the Sky Blues last month, while Cardiff offered significantly more and were also turned down.
Although McInnes has indicated his continued interest, he will await the outcome of negotiations between Keogh and Coventry officials regarding a contract extension before making an improved offer.
Keogh has a year left on his contract at Coventry and, if he refuses to agree a new deal, the cash-strapped Sky Blues may be forced to sell in order to help balance the books.
But nothing will happen until Keogh returns from the Maldives where he is currently on honeymoon with his wife.
McInnes is himself away on holiday with his family but will continue his efforts to recruit new players.
