'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Boothroyd set to benefit from Sky Blue scouting

Revealing that he is close to making an 'impact' signing as the first of up to ten potential new faces, Aidy Boothroyd is busy adding quantity and quality to the Coventry City squad he inherited from Chris Coleman.

Whatever the shortcomings of that squad, exposed over the final dozen games of last season, the Sky Blues' transfer policy during the Ray Ranson era has generally been a good one, with players identified from the lower divisions and further afield whose value is still on the rise, together with a core of solid Championship performers of the right age to (hopefully) improve during their time at the club.

The evidence is there in the sales of Daniel Fox and Scott Dann, the market value of Keiren Westwood and even in the bidding war developing for a player who didn't make it to the Ricoh Arena in the shape of Andrew Driver of Hearts.

The network that uncovered those players remains in place, giving a sense of continuity to the transfer policy despite the change of management.

Boothroyd will have the final say of course on who comes in and may look to sign a number of players but his principal task remains to get more out of those already at the club.

That core of players should be a lot stronger than that inherited by Coleman when he took over, negating the need for a massive clear-out.
