Bristol City bid for Gills star Bradley Dack

HITC Sport understands Bristol City have moved for the in-demand Gillingham star.

Bristol City have made a six-figure bid for highly-rated Gillingham star Bradley Dack, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Dack has been one of the players of the season in League One with his performances playing a key role in helping Gillingham challenge for promotion.

The 21-year-old has scored 13 goals from midfield and has also laid on seven assists for the Gills so far this season and his showings have not gone unnoticed higher up the leagues.

Several Championship clubs expressed an interest in Dack before the close of summer transfer window, and his suitors have continued to keep tabs on his progress.

Bristol City have held a long-term interest in Dack and they have targeted the former Charlton man as someone who can boost their survival bid in the Championship.

Gillingham are reluctant to lose Dack as they look to try and win promotion from League One, but Bristol City have firmly tested their resolve with a bid for the midfield dynamo.

Gillingham were bracing themselves for interest in Dack during this month's transfer window and they now have a big decision to make on his future.
