Sell or keep? The Coventry City players that could be in the shop window this summer as transfer season beckons

Published

on

Coventry City have had a rather successful season in the Championship this season.

They currently sit 11th in the league and although they are out of the play-off race now, they are only six points from the top six showing how well they have done this season.

After finishing 16th in the league last season, we can see clear progression under Mark Robins this season and this is something the club will be looking to build upon further.

With the summer transfer window now approaching, we look ahead to the players that may be up for sale for Coventry this season and see who they Sky Blues should sell and who they should keep.

Coventry City quiz: Do you know the middle name of these 15 Sky Blues stars?

1 of 15

Simon Moore

Sell

Julien Da Costa

25-year-old Julien Da Costa has been unable to break his way through into the Coventry squad and this season he has been on loan to Portimonense SC.

His contract at Coventry runs out in 2023 and if he was a younger player you may be able to see an argument to send him out on loan again next season.

However, at his age it seems like he doesn’t have a future at Coventry and he would not be able to develop himself enough in his time away to convince his manager otherwise.

On loan in Portugal, he has only made eight appearances and it seems unlikely that Robins would have a future for him at the club.

Tyler Walker

Walker has been on loan at Portsmouth since January and so far he has made 15 appearances and scored one goal.

In the first half of the season, he was given his opportunity at Coventry but scored only two goals in 19 games leading to his loan move.

Given the fact that Coventry have other attacking options and the 25-year-old hasn’t quite excelled during his time away from the club, it seems it would make sense for him to leave this summer if the Sky Blues want to progress up the league.

Martyn Waghorn

Waghorn is another centre forward who hasn’t been able to provide the goals for the Sky Blues this season.

In 26 Championship appearances this season, the player has only been able to score one goal.

Furthermore, at 32-years-old now it seems unlikely that he will be able to contribute more as he is coming towards the end of his career rather than progressing it.

Therefore, if Coventry are looking to move up the league next season they may prefer to find goalscorer who will score more consistently for them.

Keep

Ben Wilson 

Until recently, there may have been more of a view for Wilson to leave at the end of the season but after his recent call up to starting goalkeeper and his penalty save in that game with West Brom, it suggests his time could be coming at Coventry.

His penalty save in the 96th minute against the Baggies meant his side came away with a point and kept a clean sheet.

Robins called Wilson up to the starting 11 after feeling as though usual number one keeper Simon Moore needed a break.

However, after Wilson’s impressive display it’s hard to see Robins not rewarding him with another start this season.

Since Moore is now 31-years-old, there is a chance we could see a transition period between the two goalkeepers next season.

Michael Rose

Michael Rose’s contract at Coventry last until 2023 but Robins should be keen on keeping the centre-back for another year.

The 26-year-old has made 28 league appearances this season and in that time he has scored three goals and assisted twice from his defensive position.

Therefore, it’s clear to see that Rose has an impact across the pitch and can continue to do so next season.

Gus Hamer

Hamer has been linked with moves away from Coventry this season due to his impressive form with Celtic and Rangers being credited with an interest in the player.

Hamer signed a new deal with the club recently which means he is under contract until 2024 and the Sky Blues should be looking to keep him on for next season.

This season, he has made 38 league appearances and contributed three goals and 10 assists making him a crucial part of the side.

If Coventry are looking to reach their next level this season, there is no doubt that Hamer would be a crucial part of this team.
