Coventry City - Sunday Transfer Supplement

Coventry City - Sunday Transfer Supplement

A weekly look at transfers and rumours with a Sky Blue interest but also including some snippets from elsewhere.

Coventry City: The main focus of City's week was Mark Robins' decisions on those players out of contract, the Ricoh Arena boss opting to stick with the academy-based core of the club by offering new deals to Gael Bigirimana, George Thomas, Ryan Haynes, Lee Burge and the Kelly-Evans twins.

Leaving the club for definite are nine out-of-contract players including Nathan Clarke, Kevin Foley, Vladimir Gadzhev, Andy Rose, Ruben Lameiras and Marcus Tudgay.

Individual cases could have been made, perhaps, for Clarke, Rose and Lameiras but ultimately all were part of a squad that has endured a dismal season and suffered relegation to League Two.

Former Sky Blues: Released by their various League One clubs this week were Franck Moussa (Walsall), Reece Brown (Bury), Jamie Reckord (Oldham Athletic).

All three players played in Mark Robins' first victory as City boss, a 1-0 win away to Oldham back in September 2012.

Chris Hussey was an unused substitute in that game and has been transfer-listed by champions Sheffield United while Danny Pugh has signed a new contract with fellow relegated club Port Vale.

Deal of the week: Continuing their reputation as a stepping stone for Non-League strikers, Peterborough United have signed 42-goal Dover hitman Ricky Miller on a three-year deal after the expiry of his contract with the National League club.

A few left-backs in there, one area where we are well-stocked.
