BRISTOL CITY manager Danny Wilson has confirmed that the West Country club have had preliminary talks with the former Bolton Wanderers midfielder Paul Warhurst.
The 33-year-old is currently out of contract and is a former team-mate of the Robins boss, when the pair played together at Sheffield Wednesday.
Warhurst spent the latter part of last season with Division One side Stoke City and had been linked with a permanent move to The Britannia Stadium during the close season.
However, the Ashton Gate club have expressed an interest in the former Oldham Athletic, Blackburn Rovers and Crystal Palace man though Wilson did reveal that the veteran is one of several players he is interested in.
"There's an interest there (in Warhurst) but it's not confirmed yet, at all, in terms of him coming here but we've got other things in the back line as well," Wilson told planetfootball.com.
Meanwhile, Wilson added that negotiations are still ongoing with Scottish First Division champions Falkirk for striker Lee Miller.
"We've had nothing come back yet but we're in negotiations at the moment," said Wilson.
"We're waiting to have some confirmation back from Falkirk."
The Robins boss also hinted that he is looking for a new right-sided winger to replace the departed Scott Murray, who has joined ambitious Division One club Reading.
Youngster Kevin Amankwaah has been known to play down the right side but Wilson is looking to bring in a more experienced wide-man for the new season.
"I would be looking to bring someone else in," added Wilson.
"I don't think Kevin is suited for that role, though he can play it."
