Coventry City handed boost in Jake Clarke-Salter situation

Published

on

Jake Clarke-Salter was on loan with Coventry City from Chelsea last season and his impressive performances made him well liked at the club. 

The 24-year-old made 31 appearances in all competitions for the Sky Blues and unsurprisingly, the club are keen to sign him as their left-sided centre back for next season.

At his parent club, there is an option to extend his contract for a year which would make any team wanting him required to pay a fee for the player as well making it an unlikely transfer for Coventry.

However, Coventry Live have reported that Chelsea are willing to let the player leave on a free transfer this summer which would therefore put the Sky Blues as favourites to get this deal done.

Due to his strong season, there has been plenty of interest in the player this summer from Sheffield United, Leeds United and PSV all of which are in better financial positions that Coventry and would therefore be in a better position to get the player on a paid transfer.

However, considering there had already been reports of talks between the defender and the Sky Blues, should Chelsea allow the player to go for free this season then Mark Robins’ side are the ones who will have the best chance of acquiring his services.

Robins has made no secret of his love for the player during the season and with him aiming to push up the table with his side next season, Clarke-Salter is the type of player who will help boost their efforts significantly.

The Verdict: 

Coventry fans will be pleased to hear the news that Chelsea may be prepared to let the player go on a free this summer as this significantly helps their efforts to get their man if not proves to be the difference.

With a new era underway at Chelsea, they may feel it’s not worth extending the contract for a chance of a fee because there is no guarantee someone choose to pay for him and if the player is keen to join the Sky Blues then it’s a deal that would suit everyone’s wants.

This hasn’t been confirmed by Chelsea so it’s not yet good news but it’s certainly encouraging in Mark Robins’ pursuit for his man.
