Bristol City are weighing up a move for former Reading defender Nicky Shorey, Sky Sports understands.

Shorey is available on a free transfer after being released by Reading at the end of last season.

Millwall had expressed an interest in Shorey with the left-back linking up with them for training, but Lions boss Steve Lomas admitted his squad would have to be trimmed before he could offer a deal.

However, Bristol City are thought to have joined the chase for the former England international.

Shorey has linked up with City for training this week so that Sean O'Driscoll can cast an eye over him at close quarters and, if he impresses, he could win a deal at Ashton Gate.
