Bristol City manager Derek McInnes has hinted at wholesale changes in his playing staff at Ashton Gate ahead of next season.

McInnes, appointed last October to rescue City from a floundering campaign, guided the Robins to safety with a game to spare courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Barnsley last weekend.

Now looking forward to next term, the Scot has suggested there may be signings aplenty in the summer.

He told the Bristol Evening Post: "It is a big summer for us and we need to try and recruit well.

"Any club that has had a really successful season has no real need for change and may just tinker with one or two positions. When you have been in the situation we have been in, fighting a relegation battle for the best part of the season, it suggests there is work to be done.

"Like any club that finds itself in the bottom half of the table, we have to recruit well. It is an important period for the club and we have to decide who is going to be a part of this again.

"I know what this club can be and, hopefully, with the right additions, we can build a squad that can be competitive and win more points than we have this season."
