LATEST UPDATE : Mark Robins drops hint about key player future after Coventry City loan deal expires

Coventry City transfer news from CoventryLive: Sky Blues manager Mark Robins addresses the future of season-long loan signing Luis Binks. Mark Robins has spoken out regarding Luis Binks’ future as the Coventry City loan defender prepares to return to Italy and his parent club Bologna.

The 22-year-old centre-back played his farewell game with the Sky Blues on Saturday, losing 2-1 to Queens Park Rangers at CBS Arena, after making 23 appearances in all competitions this season. Binks has previously declared openly that he wants to return to English football permanently, despite the fact that his current contract with the Serie A club has another two years remaining. Although the young defender hasn’t played as much as he’d like this season, he has impressed many fans and reminded the manager of his talent with an outstanding cameo against Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley, after which Robins intends to give him a chance in the side. However, an Achilles injury cut it short until the final match, when he regained fitness and joined the starting lineup.

When asked about the player’s future and whether Binks has given him reason to consider upgrading his loan to a permanent deal this summer, Robins replied: “I think Binksy has been good. He started at a certain level and is now at a decent level. He’s in Bologna for a reason, and he played a few games for Como last year.

“He’s a young centre-half, but he has a lot of potential. He’s quite good on the ball. Defensively, he needs improvement, as do all of them, because they are not the final thing, and we now have a youthful back line after Fadz went. They make mistakes, but they will undoubtedly learn from them.

“I think we have got a decent group but we definitely want to add to that and with Binksy, if he goes back and we don’t do anything or see him again, he’s been good for us.”

However, the manager hinted that Binks would be of interest this summer, saying: “He’s a fantastic youngster who has been brilliant in the dressing room. The lads adore him, and we want to stay in touch with him and see how things progress. But it will come later and will be determined by a variety of circumstances.
