Coventry: CSKA Sofia midfielder Graham Carey emerges as target

Coventry: CSKA Sofia midfielder Graham Carey emerges as target - Championship News

Coventry City boss Mark Robins is showing interest in CSKA Sofia midfielder Graham Carey, according to Top Sport as quoted by Coventry LIVE.

Sky Blues boss Robins has done some excellent work in bolstering his squad options since he masterminded his side to the League One title and automatic promotion to the Championship.

Gustavo Hamer and Julien Dacosta were two of the first names through the door at the club, whilst Marcel Hilssner has also been joined by former Aston Villa youngster Callum O’Hare and Ryan Giles.

With the new 2020/2021 season fast approaching, interest in a number of other players has emerged with Ipswich Town striker Kayden Jackson emerging as a potential signing.

Adding to the interest directed towards Jackson, Coventry are also now said to be keen on making a move for Carey.

The 31-year-old Dublin born midfielder made 18 appearances for CSKA Sofia last season, netting one goal and gaining two assists in the process.

The report also goes on to add that both Bolton Wanderers and Dundee United are keen to make a move for the former Republic of Ireland under-21 international.

Carey has a current contract with Sofia which runs until next summer and is valued by Transfermarkt at £360,000.

Whilst Mark Robins’ transfer business has been excellent this summer, a move for Carey is one that does seem strange, especially if he is wanted by League Two side Bolton. Indeed he is now 31-years-old and despite having spells at Plymouth Argyle and Huddersfield Town, he has never played above League One level in the English game.

Robins needs to find consistent performers and experienced ones at that and it would remain to be seen if Carey could come in and provide such.
