Mark Robins says he’s “not ruling anything out” in terms of Coventry City doing any late business before today’s domestic transfer deadline.
The Sky Blues boss, however, has categorically ruled out any new signings to boost his new-look squad, which has already seen 11 new additions this summer.
Asked at today’s pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s difficult trip to Brentford if he’s expecting any activity, the City manager said: “Umm… I’m not expecting any but I am not ruling anything out.
“And I am talking about out, not in.
“I can absolutely rule out, 100 per cent there’s nobody coming in.
“But what we have to do is cut our cloth accordingly and if people come in for any of our players then obviously that will be a discussion to be had with the player and their representatives to see if they move out.
“But it has to be right for us as well, so…
“There’s nothing on the horizon, but you never know. With this deadline day something may pop out of the woodwork but I haven’t really got anything planned.”
City fans will be desperately hoping no-one comes in for any of the club’s top stars.
The one name that jumps out is centre-back Michael Rose who was the subject of speculation linking him with a number of clubs including Leeds United, QPR, Fulham and Bristol City earlier in the summer.
Asked as to whether the club have been given any indications or phone calls that any bids may be coming in today for any player, he added: “No, nothing.”
