Bristol City miss out on January target Scott Wootton
Bristol City have been gazumped by fellow Championship strugglers Peterborough United in the race to sign Manchester United youngster Scott Wootton.
Robins boss Derek McInnes asked United manager Sir Alex Ferguson if he could take the 21-year-old centre-back on loan earlier this week.
But the United supremo has instead decided to help out his son, Darren, by loaning Wootton to Posh.
Proving blood is thicker than water, Ferguson senior has dispatched Wootton and midfielder Davide Petrucci to London Road to boost Peterborough’s fight for Championship survival.

Wootton, who watched Posh Aston Villa out of the FA Youth Cup on Tuesday night, is a familiar face at Peterborough fans, having spent time on loan at London Road last season.
Meanwhile, City manager McInnes has switched his attention to other targets and is preparing a bid for Crawley Town centre-back Kyle McFadzean.
