Stockport County striker Jermaine Easter is due at Ashton Gate tomorrow to discuss personal terms and take a medical with a view to signing for Bristol City.The 24 year old Welshman who started his career with Wolves and turned down a move to Oxford United earlier today, could go straight into the City squad to face Swansea on Saturday, if formalities are completed on time tomorrow. Easter, who is 5'9' tall and weighs in at 12st. 2lbs.has also played for Hartlepool, Cambridge and Boston from whom he joined Stockport in May of last year. Despite playing in a side struggling at the foot of division two, Easter has flourished this season, scoring eleven goals in 22 appearances thus far,on the debit side he has also collected 6 yellow cards.
Gary Johnson, always reluctant to discuss transfers until deals are finalised, admitted that City had made a bid which Stockport found acceptable. The City boss told the official club site that City had been watching Jermaine for quite some time, that he is a quick, hard running striker who is still young, but had done brilliantly for County this season, considering their position in the league.
Earlier today City were also linked with West Bromwich Albion midfielder/winger Lloyd Dyer but there has been no confirmation of negotiations from either club, as yet.
