Coventry: Mark Robins discusses Ryan Giles’ arrival

Coventry: Mark Robins discusses Ryan Giles’ arrival - Coventry City News

Coventry City boss Mark Robins has discussed the arrival of Ryan Giles on a loan deal from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Following a successful 2019/2020 campaign which ended in promotion from League One to the Championship, Robins has already began to strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

Gustavo Hamer from PEC Zwolle and Julien Dacosta from Chamois Niortais both arrived on a free transfer, before a deal to bring in Callum O’Hare on a permanent deal soon followed.

Marcel Hilssner’s signing was then announced last Thursday, and that has now been followed up by a fifth signing in Wolves youngster Giles, who has penned a one-year loan deal.

Giles, who spent last season on loan with Shrewsbury Town up until January before he moved to Coventry, will now come into Robins’ side to begin training before the completion of his deal on 27 July.

Discussing his latest acquisition, Robins told the club’s official website: “We’re very pleased to have the chance to welcome Ryan back to the Club.

“When he joined us in January, Ryan had been a player who has been within our Recruitment process and who we’d been aware of for the previous two years.

“He impressed us in training and around the squad and he was unlucky not to appear more during his loan, then of course the season was curtailed due to the Coronavirus, so it’s great to have the opportunity to welcome him back.

“He can play a number of positions, but particularly on the left of the defence or midfield.

“He has great technical ability, is good going forward and will be a real asset to the squad for the season ahead.

“We look forward to working with Ryan again, and thanks Wolves for agreeing to the loan and allowing Ryan to train with us before it is formally completed.”

Giles a fifth summer arrival at Coventry could also be followed by a sixth with the club being linked with a move for Monaco defender Jonathan Panzo.

Another shrewd bit of business from Coventry as Robins continues to bolster his squad options and strengthen certain areas.

The versatile nature of Giles will allow Robins to have cover both at left back and in the left midfield area.
