The near future of Coventry talisman Frank Moussa is still very much in the balance, with a whole host of Championship and League 1 clubs are interested in the sky blue’s number 14.
Moussa has just over 20 days remaining on his 18 month contract, which he signed in the start of January 2013. It seems as if Coventry, given their current financial situation, are not willing to offer the midfielder a new contract, which has sparked speculation over his future and interest from a number of teams.
The tricky winger who has made nearly 80 appearances for City has impressed greatly, finding the back of the net 14 times this season and being a vital player in Coventry’s frustrating season, most notably when fellow teammate and club top scorer Callum Wilson was out of action for two months with a shoulder injury. Like Moussa, Wilson has been linked with moves away from Sixfields stadium, with Coventry quickly rejecting a 7 figure bid less than 24 hours ago from AFC Bournemouth.
Boss Steven Pressley has already confirmed it will be very hard for City to keep hold of their most prized assets this summer, due to the financial instability of the club, which saw them have 10 points docked at the start of last season.
‘It’s fair to say Frank will be a target for Championship clubs and we just can’t match Championship club wages’ said Pressley in an interview with Coventry Telegraph. ‘Running this club properly when you consider Financial Fair Play and the fact we play in front of 1600 supporters, I think you can do your own maths. Our only real chance with Frank would be if an opportunity that he had fell through, so the likelihood of him staying here is very, very slim.’
Wolverhampton Wanderers’ boss Kenny Jackett is reportedly the closest so far to make a move for the 24-year old Belgian, who could follow the same path as ex-Coventry player Leon Clarke. Clarke, who made the trip across the midlands in January for a reported £750, 000 fee has found life difficult at Wolves under Jacket, and there have been strong rumours of a loan move away for the striker.
