Coventry City boss Mark Robins has said that he needs to sell a number of players before the transfer window comes to a close.
After gaining promotion from League One to the Championship last season, winning the league title in the process, Robins has been working hard this summer to bring in some new faces.
No less than eight players have come in to join the Sky Blues with the likes of Gustavo Hamer and Ben Sheaf arriving to bolster different areas of Robins squad.
Whilst a whole host of players also departed at the end of last season, Robins has now said that others could follow the likes of Junior Brown and Zain Westbrooke out of the Midlands club.
Robins, who was speaking after his side’s defeat against Bristol City and ahead of the upcoming EFL Cup fixture against Gillingham, said: “We need to move some players out and the natural thing is to look at the younger players and think right, what’s the likelihood of them starting games with us and developing with us.”
Asked about the prospect of any new arrivals, the City boss further added: “I have to wait and see.
“With the window running until October 5 we have a little bit of time to assess things this month to see where we’re at.
“It totally depends on this month and whether the club need me to do some more work in terms of moving people out, and what that means.
“It doesn’t necessarily mean people out to bring people in, it means people out to try to bring the cost base down and function like that as well as we possibly can do. Everyone knows we have to make sense of the finances as well as the players and the team, and I think we have done pretty well so far.”
Robins has been superb in the summer transfer window and his side were extremely unlucky not to get an opening day result against Bristol City at the weekend.
Moving forward, the team will be expected to gel even more and results will hopefully follow.
A number of exits are expected, one for the player to leave and get first team football and two, for Robins to free up some funds.
