Coventry City are in talks with Icelandic second division side Keflavík IF over the possibility of sending one of the Sky Blues most highly-rated teenagers out on loan, Mark Robins has confirmed.
Jonny Ngandu, 18, was linked with the move abroad by reporters in Iceland on Thursday night after shaking off a pre-season illness to score against Southampton at St. Mary’s on Tuesday night.
And now boss Mark Robins has confirmed to CoventryLive that the deal is in the works.
A loan move for Ngandu would see him become the eleventh first-team player to leave the club this summer but the first to depart on loan.
“There is something in that, yes, but we have to wait and see if that deal gets finalised,” said Robins when asked about the reports.
“It is subject to one or two things. He has been ill this week and if we can overcome that, and it’s something that’s on the table, then I think it could be something that will be beneficial to him for a couple of months.”
He added: “He will be playing men’s football and experiencing a different culture but that’s something that remains in the balance.”
