With the Sky Blues’ campaign having finished with a brilliant 6-1 win over Millwall last time out, boss Mark Robins has now been making decisions over who he wants to be part of the squad moving forward.
And, the club confirmed on their official site this afternoon that several players will be on the move when their deals run out this summer.
Youngsters Dan Bartlett, Jordan Young, Joe Newton, Jordon Thompson and Morgan Williams will all depart, whilst the headline news from the senior squad is that Amadou Bakyaoko will join Biamou in leaving.
The former played 85 games for City, whilst Biamou featured in 115 games, scoring 26 goals.
Does the Ricoh Arena have a higher or lower capacity than these 18 grounds?
As you would expect, the news prompted a big response from the Coventry fans, particularly concerning Biamou who was a very popular figure because of the role he played in helping the club up the leagues.
Here we look at some of the reaction from Twitter…

From a stumbling start we watched a player develop, improve and progress, in tandem with the club, as we moved from the fourth to the second tier of English football.
Quite simply, he made the journey more enjoyable.
