EFL manager delivers verdict on reported Leeds United and West Brom transfer target

Published

on

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has insisted that the club have no intention of selling Zain Westbrooke, as the highly-rated midfielder continues to be linked with a move away from the Sky Blues.

The 23-year-old has been one of the standout players for Coventry this season and has scored four goals in 19 League One appearances for the Sky Blues.

His impressive performances haven’t gone unnoticed, though and with his contract at Coventry set to expire at the end of the season, the box-to-box midfielder has been linked with a move to a number of Championship clubs this month.

Sky Sports Transfer Centre (06/01, 10:55)  claimed that Leeds Untied, Cardiff City and Bristol City are all keen on signing Westbrooke, while a separate report from TEAMtalk states that West Bromwich Albion, Nottingham Forest and Derby County are also interested in the player.

However, Coventry manager Robins has insisted that the club have no intention of selling Westbrooke this month.

Speaking to the club’s media at his press conference on Friday morning, the Coventry boss insisted that he wants to get the midfielder tied down to a new contract and also revealed the player himself has expressed a desire to remain at the club.

The Verdict

Westbrooke is a promising young player and he’s been one of the standout performers for Coventry so far this season – it’ll be a major boost for the club if they can get him tied down to a new long-term contract.

There’s still a bit of room for improvement physically, but technically, he’s a very talented player and he seems as though he could have potential to make the step up to the Championship.

There’s a good chance that he could be tempted by a move to the second tier, but if what Robins is saying is true, it seems as though he wants to remain at Coventry – which is very good news for the Sky Blues.
