Leroy Rosenior has suggested Bristol City take a look at their youth policy as one of those who got away prepares to return to his former club.

Ryan Harley, who was a trainee at the Robins before moving into the pro ranks only to be sent packing from Ashton Gate, will be part of the Brighton team that takes on City on Saturday.

And Rosenior believes Harley is a prime example of the club not taking advantage of their own development programme.

"Clubs like Manchester City and Manchester United can afford to discard young players, but City aren't in that position. They need to keep hold of those talented players," he told the Bristol Evening Post.

"I see a lot of City players going to the likes of Torquay or Exeter on loan - which is good experience for the lads - but they don't seem to come back.

"These players should be going out to these clubs and then they should be coming back into the fold and given an opportunity at some stage."
