With the current campaign set to reach a crescendo next month, it will be intriguing to see whether Coventry City are able to end the term on a positive note by picking some victories in their upcoming fixtures.
Whereas it is important to note that the Sky Blues are still capable of securing a top-six finish, they will need to rely heavily on results elsewhere as they are currently six points adrift of Sheffield United who occupy the final play-off spot.
Considering that it is more than likely that Coventry will be preparing for another year in the Championship this summer, manager Mark Robins will need to decide whether to keep some of the individuals whose contracts expire following the culmination of the 2021/22 campaign.
Here, we have decided to take a look at the senior players who will leave the Sky Blues on a free if they are not offered fresh terms by the club…
Whether the Sky Blues opt to trigger this clause in the winger’s contract remains to be seen as he has struggled to maintain his fitness in recent seasons.
Jones has only featured on seven occasions for Coventry in the Championship during the current campaign due to his ongoing battles with injury.
After featuring in the Sky Blues’ League Cup defeat to Northampton Town in August, Josh Pask was forced to watch on from the sidelines until January when he sealed a loan move to Newport County.
With his current deal at Coventry set to expire this summer, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if Pask becomes a free-agent as he has clearly fallen out of favour.
Since the turn of the year, Jordan Shipley has been given a number of opportunities to showcase his talent by Mark Robins who opted to keep him at the club in the January transfer window.
Quiz: Are these 12 Coventry City facts from this season real or fake?
Given that Coventry do have an option to extend Shipley’s stay at the club for another year, the 24-year-old will be determined to convince Robins to trigger this clause by delivering the goods in the second-tier between now and the end of the campaign.
Kyle McFadzean has produced a host of assured displays in the heart of Coventry’s defence this season.
With his current deal set to reach a crescendo this summer, it would be somewhat of a shock if he wasn’t offered fresh terms by the club as he is still clearly more than capable of competing at this level.
