Sky Sports understands former Charlton Athletic midfielder Scott Wagstaff will undergo a medical at Bristol City on Monday.
Wagstaff is available on a free transfer after he was released by Charlton at the end of last season after making over 140 appearances for the club.
The 21-year-old now appears to be on the brink of securing a new club and will be assessed by the Robins' medical staff on Monday.
Robins boss Sean O'Driscoll is trying to build a squad capable of winning promotion back to the Championship at the first attempt.
Trialist Martin Woods will spend a few more days with the club after scoring in Saturday's friendly defeat by Clevedon Town, while a decision is due to be made on goalkeepers Kelle Roos and Reice Charles-Cook.
