Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that he is looking at the prospect of making some quick signings before the start of the new season. The club were relegated from the Championship last season, while a transfer embargo was also placed on the club.
However, the football league recently revealed that the transfer embargo that has been placed upon Coventry City now stands removed. As a result, the club will be able to sign players ahead of the start of the new season. Andy Thorn has said that he is extremely delighted with the decision taken by the football league and is looking to make quick signings in order to make the squad competitive prior to the start of the new season.
Even though Thorn has admitted that the club have not been able to get a number of their top priority targets due to the transfer embargo, he has said that he has a list of players who would be equally good for the club, whilst he’d also be looking to get a few playes in on loan from the top clubs like Man Utd or Tottenham.
It was thought that Andy Thorn was looking at the possibility of bringing Shrewsbury town striker James Collins, while Bradford city midfielder David Syers has also been linked heavily with the club. However, they have decided to join other clubs instead due to the transfer embargo.
“It’s a big weight off our shoulders. The shackles are off and all the hard work can start now to try to do some business and we want to try to get as many as we can.I haven’t been off the phone all day after we got the news through, which is great, and there are more people who fancy coming. It’s disappointing that we lost out on players who we had shown round the Ricoh and wanted to sign but it is nice now that we can go and do something, so let’s see what we can get,” said Thorn.
