First movement through the City exit door

First movement through the City exit door

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has confirmed that Sammy Clingan is likely to leave the club this summer after turning down a new contract with the Sky Blues.

The midfielder was the key man in Thorn's formation going into the current campaign but ultimately offered little in terms of creating chances for his forward players or hitting the back of the net himself.

Oliver Norwood's arrival on loan from Manchester United gave the Sky Blues more penetration in the centre of the park and upstaged Clingan, who was relegated with Norwich before coming to the Ricoh Arena but clearly still believes he is a Championship player.

Thorn is hopeful that Martin Cranie will accept the offer of a new deal although the defender would be far more justified than Clingan in hoping to remain in the second tier of English football.

Clive Platt will discuss a new contract, much to the chagrin of many on the Telegraph website but he was a key player in City's brief revival while Freddy Eastwood will make a permanent exit after ending the season on loan at former club Southend United.
