The transfers rumours continue at Coventry City

The summer transfer window is well and truly running and the Sky Blues look to add to their squad that had a successful return to League One last season.

As the rumour mill continues on the incomings and where the club will play this season, it is also the outgoings that may concern Coventry City fans this summer.

The Sky Blues manager, Mark Robins has had an overhaul of players this season, releasing nine players including; academy products; Lee Burge, Chris Camwell, Reece Ford and Billy Stedman who left alongside substitute goalkeeper, Liam O’Brien; fans favourites, Tom Davies and Jack Grimmer also left to find more first team football; veteran players, Stuart Beavon and Toni Andreu were also realised, respectively.

However, one of Robins’ aims this season would be keeping defender, Jordan Willis, who has been offered a new contract to stay at the club, the lad from Coventry has been linked at a number of Championship clubs for a few seasons, but he has remained loyal to his boyhood club, now his contract is up it could mean his time is up at the Sky Blues.

The club are still waiting on Willis’ response, but chief executive, Dave Boddy is hopeful Willis stays and is surprised that the defender hasn’t left the club yet as he believed that the former skipper had an offer on the table from another club.

For many Coventry City fans, Willis will be seen like a new signing as a player of his quality, the Sky Blues will do very well to keep him.

With the Sky Blues hoping to keep a hold of Willis, the club are also looking to swoop in for newly promoted side, Tranmere Rovers forward, Connor Jennings, who has attracted a lot of attention after his impressive season in League Two last year.

The 27 year old scored the only goal in the 2019 League Two play-off final against Newport County to give Tranmere back-to-back promotions.

Coventry City, however, face a challenge from promotion rivals Portsmouth and Rotherham United for the signature of Jennings.

Robins’ main aim for the new season would be a forward as the team struggle last season with goals, despite the club finishing just outside the play-offs.

Is Jennings going to be that man?
