Mark Robins loves a transfer window
With the transfer window only being opened for a month, Coventry City manager has already made eight new signings.
Robins has been busy with revamping the Sky Blues squad for the upcoming 2019/20 season signing Kyle McFadzean, Marko Marosi and Ben Wilson.
As well as these additions in the past two weeks Robins has signed another five players.
The first out of these fives players was full-back, Fankaty Dabo from Chelsea on a free agent. An exciting new signing brought in from the Premier League side, as Coventry City assistant manager and the former Chelsea development manager, Adi Viveash, uses more of his contacts to attract more young, exciting Chelsea players.
The second one was winger, Wesley Jobello, who was signed for an undisclosed fee from Gazélec Ajaccio. A tricky, pacey winger, who won Ajaccio fans over, was a real steal for Robins as the manager looks to improve his squad with overseas players.
The next one to sign for the Sky Blues was centre-back, Josh Pask, who was signed from West Ham United on a pre-contract. The young defender, looks to gain more first team experience as he joins up with the League One side. The 21-year-old spoke about signing for the club, “As soon as I found out they were interested in signing me, I couldn’t not take the offer.”
Centre midfielder, Dan Bartlett, was the next one to follow, who was snapped up from Southampton on a free agent. The 18-year-old spent a trial period with the club and has reached an agreement to sign permanently. Development manager, Jason Farndon said, “He is technically very good and controls the tempo of the game from midfield and he also has the ability create goals and also score them, so he will be real asset to the group next season.”
The most recent addition is winger, Gervane Kastaneer, who was bought for an undisclosed fee from NAC Breda. The most exciting of all the transfers this summer was a shock signing from the Sky Blues. Head of recruitment, Chris Badlan spoke on the transfer and said, “Effectively, he shouldn’t really be playing in League One, he should be playing higher, he’s one where I know his agent really well and rang him up, expecting him to say no.”
With the recruitment of eight players already brought in from Robins, the job is still not over from the Sky Blues gaffer and the fans are in for a really interesting transfer window.
