Coventry City have made an encouraging start to the new season by taking four points from their opening three Championship games.
Mark Robins’s has bolstered his squad with ten signings so far in the summer transfer window with some exciting additions, not least midfielder Gus Hamer who has made an instant impact with the club.
Centre-half Leo Ostigard is another who has started every league game so far, while several of the other new boys continue to get themselves up to speed and ready to make an impact.
With so many coming in it’s inevitable that Robins needs to trim his squad, with the likes of Gervane Kastaneer, Brandon Mason and Max Biamou all appearing to have slipped down the pecking order and in need of game time elsewhere.
Youngsters Josh Eccles and Declan Drysdale, meanwhile, are the first of a number of development squad players to go out on loan, the pair having joined League One Gillingham.
More are hoped to follow in order to get vital first team experience to further their development at City and prepare them for senior football.
There’s also the question as to whether the Sky Blues will receive any late bids for any of their star players.
Michael Rose was linked with a host of clubs, including Leeds United and Bristol City, earlier in the summer and Coventry will, no doubt, be hoping the it stays all quiet on that front.
Stay tuned to hear all the latest news from Ryton as the transfer window clock ticks down.
The deadline for international deals is Monday (October 5) and City have another 11 days of a mini window after that to do any domestic deals up until October16.
