Thorn frees five at City

Thorn frees five at City

Lee Carsley is one of five players not offered a new Coventry City contract by manager Andy Thorn as the new man in charge reshapes his squad for next season.

Having been the key signing for Aidy Boothroyd and then missed out on the Sky Blues' revival under Thorn it is no surprise that the 37-year-old is free to either extend his playing career elsewhere or look to move into coaching.

Thorn has also handed a huge boost to Chris Hussey by allowing fellow left-back Stephen O'Halloran to leave. Another Boothroyd buy, the former Aston Villa man made an impressive (belated) start to his City career against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup but was usurped by Hussey after that.

Sadly, injuries have hampered Isaac Osbourne's career to date and he, along with Michael MicIndoe and Michael Quirke are also leaving the club. Osbourne has started a trial with Aberdeen following his release while City boss Thorn has confirmed that Joe Murphy of Scunthorpe is on his radar should Keiren Westwood reject the club's offer of a new contract.

Hard to argue against any of these decisions but sad to see Ossy go

surprised with release of O'Halloran and Osbourne but hopefully he has his inbound players lined up. Do feel it is important for Marlon King to stay.

Personally I think there will be a few more players go yet, a new look CCFC next season and good times to look forward to under Andy Thorne.

Hussey's displays over the past few games must have made his mind up over O'Halloran. As for Ossy it is a shame but too many injuries mean he is not a long-term prospect.
