Coventry City: transfer window latest

The early focus of the transfer window for Coventry City has been on players leaving the Ricoh Arena with fringe men Gary Borrowdale and Chris Birchall exiting the club.

A reported fee of 500,000 for Borrowdale from Queens Park Rangers is, as Andy Turner has written in the Telegraph, a superb bit of business for a player who was third-choice left-back for Chris Coleman while Birchall was equally off the radar as far as first-team action was concerned.

Hartlepool are unlikely to come back in for Kevin Kyle after Danny Wilson's departure as manager but the striker's goal return while back in the North East could see other League One clubs come in for him.

Higher up the Sky Blues food chain, Danny Fox and Kieren Westwood have been both the subject of speculation linking them with moves to the Premier League.

City have been quick to deny any sales but all fans are aware that every player has his price.

The speculation is, in itself, a vindication of the club's new transfer policy.

Both Fox and Westwood were signed on the assumption that they would either give plenty of good service or be sold at a profit (or both) and that certainly seems to be the case.

As Chris Coleman has said, the likes of Fox, Westwood, Gunarsson and Dann will attract interest from other clubs and that's a healthy situation to be in.

Reports of players coming in to strengthen the squad have been thinner on the ground.

James McPake's wish for an early move to England looks set for a bit of brinksmanship towards the end of the window as Livingston battle financial problems of their own.

That aside, City seem determined to stick to their guns, not pay over the odds and keep searching for the right player, at the right age and for the right price.

A refreshing change from what has gone before.
