LATEST UPDATE : Coventry City boss Mark Robins list out 5 key players Coventry could sign next season

looks at five players that Mark Robins’ Coventry City could sign next season.
Despite a fantastic mid-season run, Coventry City’s start and end to the season cost them a place in the Championship play-offs.

As the summer transfer window approaches, the Sky Blues may focus on signing fresh players across the board. Callum O’Hare and Fabio Tavares are two players that could quit the Midlands side.

Given these prospective departures and existing positions under inspection, here are five players that Coventry City should look to sign this summer:

Chris Willock

Chris Willock

Chris Willock of QPR is out of contract at Loftus Road this summer and would be an excellent addition to play anywhere behind Ellis Simms up forward.

The clever attacker, who can play off both the right and left wings, could give stiff competition for Haji Wright and Tatsuhiro Sakamoto, among others. Willock, a more creative player than Wright and, on average, facing more players than Sakamoto (according to FBRef), might be an excellent addition to Robins’ current wingers.

A Championship stalwart, he has been linked with a move to a promotion-chasing club for several years, and this year could be his chance. Other clubs will surely compete, with Sunderland also reportedly interested.

Willock, a free agent with a current contract at £9,400 per week, should not cause any financial problems for the Sky Blues, and it would not be surprising to see him in their starting lineup next season.

Lukas Jensen

Lukas Jensen

Danish goalkeeper Lukas Jensen would be an excellent addition to Coventry this summer. This year, Ben Wilson and Brad Collins have shared goalie duties, and both have made mistakes, as seen by Collins’ recent inaccuracy against Hull City.

Jensen, the current Lincoln goalkeeper, would be a great candidate to step up and take the number one shirt at Coventry. With nearly 4000 minutes for the Imps this season, his goals avoided, high claims, clean sheets, and save percentage all rank in the top 10% of League One, according to FotMob.

This is significantly superior to Collins’ or Wilson’s, and it may not be too pricey to steal him away from the Imps.

Harrison Burrows


EFL Trophy star Harrison Burrows would be an unbelievable signing for Coventry next season. With Jake Bidwell aging and Jay Dasilva not setting the world alight, Posh’s number three would be a stellar addition and could propel the Midlands side towards the upper echelons of the Championship.

Having progressed through Peterborough’s ranks, at just 22-years-old, Burrows has played a large part in the past four seasons for the Cambridgeshire side. This season it really took off though, and with 28 goal contributions in 56 games across all competitions, you will struggle to find a more technically gifted full-back.

Averaging in advance of both current Coventry left-backs for the majority of defensive and attacking stats, he would be a top signing. Slotting perfectly between Dasilva’s attacking outlet and Bidwell’s defensive resolution, there is no better option.

Posh had rejected a January offer from an undisclosed buyer for Burrows but given they miss out on promotion, it would be no surprise to see him leave this summer. Interest could come from a higher level, but a large offer in advance of his valuation may be enough to convince Burrows

Macauley Langstaff

A player that will be linked to moves to many teams this summer will be Notts County’s, Macauley Langstaff. Since his release from York City in 2020, the 27-year-old has scored 103 goals in 157 games for the Magpies and Gateshead, netting 42 in 48 games for County in their 2022/23 promotion campaign.

A natural goalscorer, he thrives on good service and could provide a completely different option to Simms. This would also give the opportunity for Robins to change tactics, and play Langstaff alongside either Wright or Simms in a front two when chasing goals.

A valuation of £1.5 million makes him easily affordable for most Championship clubs and should the Sky Blues renew their interest, we could see Langstaff make the short move to Coventry soon enough.

Bosun Lawal

With Ben Sheaf’s departure on the horizon, Coventry may need to sign a new central defensive midfielder this summer. The greatest solution would be to sign Bosun Lawal on loan from Celtic.

After performing admirably in a relegated Fleetwood side, the 20-year-old is set for another move away from the Hoops, with many Championship clubs interested.

Coventry should undoubtedly enter the contest, as the midfielder shines in a number of areas, particularly duels won and long balls per 90. They’ll have to do something exceptional to persuade Lawal away from their opponents, but if Sheaf leaves, they have the ideal substitute in the Celtic player.
