Coventry City are no rush to make some signings according to manager Tony Mowbray, who also says that he is looking at making some value additions and not some expensive name to the squad. It is seen as a direct statement towards prudency from the club that has suffered several financial problems over the years. The former West Brom manager has unearthed some great players over the years and he is prepared to wait in order to find those names at Coventry. The club had an indifferent League One campaign after finishing just below the top half of the table.
Unless the club strengthen significantly in the summer, it looks like they will not be challenging for even a play-off place. However, there is plenty of time left to the close of the transfer window and Mowbray can still look forward to making some valuable additions. Even though the price goes up as the window approaches, longer negotiations may help reduce the price. Coventry managed only two wins in the last two months of the campaign. This poor end of season form was a major reason behind the club missing out on a top-10 finish. Mowbray remains confident that the club are not far away from challenging for promotion.
“I understand the supporters want to see new signings coming in but it’s a big market out there. You’d be amazed how many agents there are in the football industry these days and how players there are floating around and unattached to football clubs. If they are out of contract many of them still get paid until the end of July, so they are sitting there with two months money still coming in. We have some players who we have talked to and we’re looking through whose available,” said the Coventry manager.
