Coventry Live has reported that Liam Walsh is not a summer target for newly promoted Championship side Coventry City.
The 22-year-old, who was named Coventry’s Players’ Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year for the 2019/20 campaign, returned to his parent club Bristol City after the League One season was ended via a points-per-game system.
With the summer transfer window in full flow, the Robins confirmed via their official website that they have activated a one-year extension clause in his contract which could see him pursue a first team place at Ashton Gate.
Despite Walsh missing a large amount of pre-season preparations at City this summer with a minor injury, it is still expected that new manager Dean Holden will hand him a chance.
With that, a potential return to Coventry is now seemingly over with Robins no longer seeing the midfielder as a target.
Robins has enhanced his midfield with the permanent deal of Callum O’Hare and addition of Gustavo Hamer from PEC Zwolle, thus handing a question mark over whether or not the Midlands side will look for another midfield option.
Coventry fans may not worry too much about the return of Walsh not being a possibility. Mark Robins’ transfer business has been excellent and the club are looking brilliant both off and on the field.
The Sky Blues look an exciting side approaching the Championship and whilst many have them down as a potential relegation candidate, they could surprise them.
