Coventry City striker Matty Godden has told Coventry Live that his contract talks with the club are progressing well as the two parties close in on an agreement.
Godden’s current deal with the Sky Blues expires next summer, which means it is un surprising to see the club making moves to secure the striker on a new contract at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
The frontman has made a good return to action since recovering from a chronic foot injury and has scored against both Reading and Fulham in recent weeks as he steps up his match fitness.
Now the 30-year-old has provided an update on the contract talks that he and his representatives are having with the club, as he stated the following:
“The talks are ongoing.
“It’s not very far away at all. That’s all I can say but it’s a no-brainer really for me.”
“Everyone at the football club knows I love it here.
“Everyone does, so there will be no question marks over that, whatsoever.
“It’s close. It could happen this week, but who knows.”
Godden has been with the club since the summer of 2019 since joining from Peterborough United and has gradually grown into being a fan favourite after notching up 23 goals in 63 games for the Midlands outfit.

The striker will undoubtedly be looking to add to his tally on Saturday 16th October when Coventry return from international duty with a fixture away at Blackburn Rovers on the agenda.
Godden isn’t the first choice option up front for Mark Robins anymore but it is clear that the club has acknowledged the lasting impact that he has since joining them two years ago.
He provides great back up and competition for the in-form Viktor Gyokeres and is still a valuable member of the squad.
Securing him on a new contract reflects the way that the Sky Blues feel about him as a player and as a man and it will be a massive boost for the fans too.
Godden will now be looking to continue his hot streak after getting himself back to being match fit.
