Whirlwind Week for Coventry City FC

Whirlwind Week for Coventry City FC

A judgement in the courts, national newspaper headlines, three new permanent signings and the sale of last season's star man.

Just another week in the life of Coventry City as club owners SISU lost their case against the city council and seemingly rejected the offer of supporters' group KCIC of a deal to cover the rent on the Ricoh Arena before agreeing a deal that saw Callum Wilson sold to AFC Bournemouth for an initial fee of £2.25m plus two Cherries coming the other way on loan.

In some ways the Wilson transfer is separate from the off-field issues. Few League One clubs would turn down such an offer and it is a vindication of the faith shown in the player by the manager and his staff. Everything SISU do, however, is viewed through the prism of the club's decline and will therefore attract criticism.

Danny Swanson, Jim O'Brien and Reda Johnson have also joined on permanent deals and Johnson especially comes with plenty of praise from fans of his former club Sheffield Wednesday.

Having been the key man in Wilson's development, Steven Pressley now faces rebuilding his squad without his main goal-getter. The signings of Swanson and O'Brien are designed to offer more threat going forward but clearly the main focus now is buying a striker.
