Wait For Player Released List Goes On

No Announcement

Coventry City are still not in a position to announce which players they are releasing or making available for transfer or loan.

City boss Steven Pressley has talks with all the players yesterday but there will be no announcement until Steve Waggott and City staff have met the players agents and representatives and finalised the arrangements.

Pressley told Nick Connoll: “Our development director Steve Waggott and I met all 34 players over the weekend to discuss our plans for the next season and beyond. 

“There are players who will not be involved and it was vitally important this process was handled in the right manner. Those talks will be on-going.

“I have now got the chance to shape the squad and the work is well under way. “I believe that 34 players is too many for a club of this size and I want to reduce that and that is a footballing decision. However under financial fair play we still need to make decisions that will leave us room for manoeuvre when rebuilding a side that can challenge for promotion.

"We can only spend on our playing budget, 60 per cent of our turnover and, as everyone is aware, we do not currently have access to a great deal of the revenue we generate. I have to factor that into my plans."
