Coventry City are still actively looking to move on players before today’s international transfer deadline.
Top of the list is Dutch forward Gervane Kastaneer whose best option appears to be a return to his native Netherlands.
The 24-year-old trained with a club back in Holland last month with a view to a permanent or season-long loan deal but that fell through and he returned to Ryton, where he last week turned out for the Sky Blues Under-23s.
Manager Mark Robins has said that the door is not completely closed for fringe players who don’t figure in his immediate plans but it’s understood the club would prefer to move the player on, and they have until 11pm to get something sorted if Kastaneer is to return home.
That’s when the international transfer window closes. Should he still be at City tomorrow then the club have until October 16 to try to find a domestic move for the player.
Fans’ favourite Max Biamou is another who doesn’t figure in the manager’s immediate plans and a move back to France might be an option for the striker, who could almost certainly do a job for an English League One club.
But as of lunchtime today, it was still a case of all quiet on the Sky Blues front as the club were still “working on” potential moves away from City to lighten the wage bill.
