Coppell on transfer trail

11 July 2010 01:31
Bristol City boss Steve Coppell is still in the market for new players and believes transfer activity will step up a gear in the final weeks of pre-season. The Robins chief, who is preparing his side for a tour to Sweden, has already snapped up Albert Adomah and Kalifa Cisse from Barnet and Reading respectively. Coppell, whose side host Millwall in their npower Championship opener next month, told the club's official website: "Things from here on in will start to happen quicker. "At the end of the season clubs have certain targets and they'll try and acquire them. As we get closer to the start of the season clubs will start to play pre-season games, deficiencies become apparent. "There's obviously the deadline in August, but I think the vast majority of transfers will happen in the last 10 days to two weeks ahead of the first game of the season."
