Mark Robins has revealed that he’d like to add one more player to his Coventry City squad.
The Sky Blues boss has already signed ten players so far in the summer transfer window which still has a few weeks left to run, with plenty of time for more business both in and out of the club.
The 50-year-old is keen to trim the numbers with a handful of development players expected to go out on loan, while the club are actively looking for a move for the likes of Gervane Kastaneer who is deemed surplus to requirement.
But what about any more in-coming business?
City have been strongly linked with Dundee United striker Lawrence Shankland this summer whom they are reported to have watched as recently as last weekend.
“The plan was always that there was another one player, but we won’t be doing that,” he told CoventryLive.
He went on to explain: “I think the club have been brilliant; absolutely brilliant. We are talking about circumstances where we have lost that extra revenue stream with the supporters not being there and what have you, and that makes a big difference to everyone.
“But what we have done so far is fantastic and testament to the backing that I have been given, so I am delighted with everything that has gone on.
“I think we have got a really good squad and think we have a really good chance. We just need to make sure we do our bit and keep improving, and that’s for us to keep going.
“It takes time, you don’t just bring players in and they fit and that’s it. There’s a lot of work to be put into them but they’re the right players. There’s a good balance, there’s a decent spirit, which is a start.
“And I think once we get supporters back in we’ll be up to speed and I am sure everyone will enjoy being back and watching their team, who they will be proud of.”
As for out-goings, young midfielder Josh Eccles joined League One Gillingham last week but are there any more in the pipeline?
“Who knows!” he said.
“There are plans but they are only plans until someone asks to take the players anyway, so it’s not as simple as that and there has to be a number of criteria met before that happens.
“At this moment in time there’s not too much happening on that front but who knows, we have got until the 15th of October for the domestic stuff.”
