Coventry City announce transfer for 21-year-old striker



Coventry City have confirmed on the club’s official website that Kwame Thomas has joined Sutton United on a one-month loan deal.

Thomas has linked up with Sutton in the Vanarama National League initially until October 7th.

The striker has been with Coventry for little over a year, but has struggled for opportunities at the Ricoh Arena since his arrival from Derby County in the summer of 2016.

Thomas has made just 14 senior appearances for Coventry, managing to score three goals in Sky Bet League One last season, as the Sky Blues were relegated to the fourth-tier of English football.

So far during the 2017/18 campaign, Mark Robins has not used Thomas in Coventry’s first-team, with the 21-year-old now set for a temporary spell away from the Ricoh Arena.

After five league fixtures, Coventry are currently sat 10th in the League Two table, having picked up seven points from the opening month of the season.

However, the Sky Blues are without a victory since August 12th, failing to win any of their last four fixtures across all competitions.

Robins’ side have back-to-back fixtures at the Ricoh Arena in the coming week, facing Port Vale and Carlisle United in the space of four days.

The Verdict  

Coventry’s decision may puzzle sections of their supporters, particularly with Robins’ strikeforce not finding their best at this current time.

However, Thomas clearly does not feature in Coventry’s plans, and it is best for the striker to move away temporarily to gain some much-needed fitness.

Coventry will undoubtedly be monitoring Thomas’ development at Sutton, and could look to bring him back later in 2017 if he manages to rediscover his goalscoring touch.
