Coventry: Tom Billson to extend his stay at the club

Coventry: Tom Billson to extend his stay at the club - Coventry City Transfer Rumours

Coventry City have announced their retained list and those players leaving on a free transfer this summer, whilst also confirming they have offered Tom Billson a new deal.

The Sky Blues were greeted with the news from the English Football League that they had gained promotion to the Championship last week after the League One season was ended via a points-per-game system.

Mark Robins’ side will now look to bring in some new faces over the summer as they approach the challenge of playing in England’s second tier and the club have now published their retained list via their official website.

New deals saw Amadou Bakayoko, Zain Westbrooke and Jordan Young among those remaining at the club, whilst eight players were allowed to leave due to their expiring contracts.

One of those players who also saw their contract expire with the Sky Blues was 19-year-old keeper Billson, however, the club have confirmed that they have entered negotiations to extend his deal.

Billson, who joined Coventry in 2017 from Leicester City as a youth player, has gradually been developing through the club’s academy sides.

Representing the club at under-18 and under-23 level, the young keeper also had a spell with non-league side Barwell last year.

It seems like a wise decision to keep hold of Billson past the summer for Coventry, having previously had high hopes for the keeper.

Coventry are set to embark on a return to the Championship and the 19-year-old keeper would be a good option to have as third/fourth choice.

Ben Wilson and Marko Marosi are expected to hold down the number one and number two spots, but if Billson can continue his development and thrive in the under-23 side, who knows, his future could be more than promising.

Do you think Billson will become a long term first team player? Let us know in the comment section below…
