Coventry City stance emerges on 28-year-old amid previous Wigan Athletic interest

Coventry City have deemed first-teamer Todd Kane surplus to requirements at the CBS Arena, according to a report from Coventry Live.

This news comes despite Julien Dacosta’s temporary move away from the Sky Blues, with the Frenchman linking up with local team Shrewsbury Town for the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign.

Summer addition Dermi Lusala has also linked up with the club’s under 23s and doesn’t seem to be in Mark Robins’ first-team plans just yet despite seeing him spend time with Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur in the past.

He wasn’t in their matchday squad for their opening game of the season against Sunderland – but neither was Kane with Josh Eccles starting at right wing-back at the Stadium of Light and Fankaty Dabo taking up a place on the bench.

There is little chance of the ex-Chelsea man filling in on the left-hand side either, with Jake Bidwell and summer addition Tayo Adaramola both at Robins’ disposal following the departure of Ian Maatsen.

And there’s a real chance Kane could leave the CBS Arena between now and the end of the summer window, with Wigan Athletic previously registering their interest and the Sky Blues needing to get a player off their wage bill to recruit another addition.

Coventry Live add that there’s little happening in terms of a potential departure for the 28-year-old at this stage.

The Verdict:

Previously surplus to requirements at Queens Park Rangers, you have to feel sorry for the 28-year-old who will want to settle down permanently somewhere else for the next few years.

It looked as though he found himself the ideal home in the Midlands, even with a starting spot not guaranteed each with Dabo also fighting for a place in the first 11.

This competition looked set to push up his performance levels for the coming years – but Eccles seems to be a preferred option at this stage and this looks set to be costly for Kane who may now be seeking another move away.

You wouldn’t exactly blame the full-back if he wanted to remain at his current club after only joining last year – because there’s every chance he could force his way back into contention – especially with injuries and suspensions likely to come into play.

If he wants to guarantee himself regular first-team football though, he may be better off looking at alternative options and a move away looks likely to be sanctioned if an appropriate offer does come in.
