The 24-year-old put the Robins ahead with a terrific left-foot shot across Sergio Romero in the second half and had a hand in the winner in stoppage time that dumped United out at the quarter-final stage.
If reports are correct, the Blues have been scouting Bryan for the left-back position that has been a problem this season following Leighton Baines's injury.

Leighton is getting older and a bit slower, we need fresh young talented legs at left back.
With Bryan at LB, Seamus or Kenny at RB, the defence would be sorted for years to come. I am confident Holgate and Keane can forge a partnership too.
Mr Moshiri, this one looks a safe bet and a good investment! Strike now.

Don't worry, we're after Nzonzi to fill that empty spot.

Especially Connolly who seems to be doing well at Ipswich, scoring a few goals lately, but appears that he has been played more upfield as s wingback? Can anyone confirm that?
If so, do we need another ‘promising' youngster?

I don't know anything about Bryan but let's be honest, the board have an abysmal transfer record so I'm not getting too excited.

However, even with returning players & adding fringe players like Garbutt to the squad, we really need another centre forward, if only to lessen the burden on Calvert-Lewin.

Err... maybe because he's not here. He's out on loan.
A full season loan. Yes, that's it.
He's getting starts at Ipswich... does that count 10 starts. Most in November and December after a slow start with the Tractor Boys.
But a full-season loan means we probably won't see him in the Everton shirt.

I feel Danny Rose i s worth a shot as he has fallen out with Spurs over his wages. Don't really know much about this kid but that Max guy from Germany is highly rated too.
If we are to get anywhere we need to forget about Garbutt and Galloway whose time has long passed. Callum Connolly looks promising but isn't ready yet.

The club has failed to adequately replace, or even bother replacing at all, long term stalwarts of the Moyes era such as Pienaar, Baines and Jags. Very good players, all of them. The constant change in the manager's seat hasn't helped. I suppose one of the purposes of a director of football is to negate that.
We badly need another center back, preferably that has pace. We also don't have the flexibility to convincingly play with a 3 at the back. Don't be fooled by Ashley Williams's upturn in form, it's only because we are defending so deep. Evans in from West Brom would be a good signing, with the aim of him and Keane being our long term partnership. He's a good age for a center back, gettable, and is at his peak.
