LACK OF TRANSFER ACTIVITY IS WORRYING


YET another transfer window passes by without much notable action from the Sky Blues camp.

I can’t remember the last time I got excited about any transfer window at the club, because these days it usually ends up with us losing one of our key players.

This time around it was Lukas Jutkiewicz who was allowed to walk away from the Ricoh Arena as he jumped ship to join play-off chasing Middlesbrough.

His replacement, Alex Nimley, proved his critics wrong with a stunning debut performance and the 20-year-old looks like a great prospect.

So does Northern Ireland international Oliver Norwood, who joined the club on loan until the end of the season at the end of an uneventful transfer deadline day.

Looking ahead, whether the Sky Blues survive in the Championship or drop into League One next season, Andy Thorn or his replacement has a tough job on their hands in the next transfer window.

These two youngsters are on loan and will return to their parent club in the summer and several key first team stars have yet to put pen to paper on a new contract.

These include skipper Sammy Clingan and Martin Cranie, giving them the option of walking away for free in June in a similar scenario to last season, which saw Marlon King, Keiren Westwood and Aron Gunnarsson all depart on a free transfer.

Taking all this into consideration, the re-building process that will need to take place from July 1 to August 31 is enormous.

There are sure to be plenty of and ins and outs, and with the possibility of investment, the next trans-fer window could prove to be one of the more exciting in recent years…I hope!
