Coventry City have confirmed the sale of Zain Westbrooke to Bristol Rovers via their official website.
With Mark Robins now preparing for the Championship, Westbrooke’s sale comes after the a number of significant arrivals.
Callum O’Hare was the next player to be announced as a Coventry player, agreeing a permanent move to the club after spending last term on loan at the Sky Blues from Aston Villa.
Westbrooke joins Bristol Rovers and will drop down from the Championship back to League One, where he will undoubtedly be keen to replicate the success he had with Coventry.
The 23-year-old midfielder was part of the Sky Blues side last season which secured promotion to the Championship, featuring for Robins’ side on 25 occasions in which he netted four goals and gained two assists.
A strange move for Westbrooke back down to League One and one for Coventry, it is a little surprising that they have let him go given he played fairly regularly last term.
That being said, Robins has been active in the summer transfer window and he may feel he has better options moving into the new season.
Do you think Coventry should have kept hold of Westbrooke? Let us know in the comments section below…
