Coventry City: Jonny Ngandu completes loan move to Keflavik

Coventry City: Jonny Ngandu completes loan move to Keflavik - Coventry City News

Coventry City youngster Jonny Ngandu has completed a loan move to Icelandic side Keflavik, it has been confirmed via the club’s official website.

The Sky Blues have had a busy summer on the transfer market with the arrival of a number of new faces to bolster Mark Robins’ squad.

Coventry are gearing up for a crack at the Championship after promotion from League One, but one player who will not be involved next term is youngster Ngandu.

The 18-year-old made his senior debut against Cheltenham Town in the Carabao Cup in 2018 but that remains his only first team appearance for the Sky Blues.

Ngandu, who was once linked with a move to Manchester United, has now completed a move to Icelandic side Keflavik, who currently sit second in the Icelandic First Division, the second tier of football in the Nordic country, meaning a promotion could be on the cards.

Ngandu is expected to head straight in to the Keflavik starting XI, being given a chance to gain experience of football in another country and some valuable first team exposure.

It seems a strange move for Ngandu to leave the Sky Blues on loan for Keflavik, given that the Icelandic second tier is hardly one that springs to mind for a youngster to gain experience of good, competitive football – the country’s top tier is ranked 46th out of 55 on UEFA’s association club coefficient.

Surely a move to League Two or even the National League would have been more beneficial for the youngster, but nonetheless it is now up to him to impress in Iceland and try to prove his long-term worth at Coventry.

Do you think the loan to Keflavik is a good move for Ngandu? Let us know in the comments section below…
