HITC Sport understands Shabazz Omefe is set to join the Robins.
Bristol City manager Lee Johnson
Bristol City have lined up a deal for non-league starlet Shabazz Omefe, HITC Sport understands.
The 19-year-old has been handed a short-term deal after impressing during a previous trial spell.
Omefe began playing as a youth with a number of clubs including Chelsea, but after failing to progress he drifted out of football before being picked up by the Aspire Academy - who help young footballers.

He finished last season playing a couple of games for non-league Walton and Hersrham but he will start next season in the pro-ranks with City.
Omefe is a majestic central midfielder, and The Robins' youth staff have very high hopes for him.

City have been keeping a close tab on non-league prospects and last season picked up another Aspire product in the shape of Shawn McCoulsky.
Omefe is set to start pre-season with the youth set-up at Ashton Gate but hopes are high he will soon step-up to Lee Johnson's first-team squad.
