Correct, he is on loan until June 2024, he has been at Ajax since 2019 and by their standards not lived up to expectations. Of course Nordsjælland will have an option to buy, he started his career at Nordsjælland. What people fail to understand is an option to buy means very little if another club comes calling with a £4 million bid and Nordsjælland do not have the funds to activate the option to buy the player.

You can easily sit there and say "your mate has had your pants down" what you fail to understand is Coventry City would have been in for literally loads of players during this window, not too mention some of the players they have missed out on in January will very much be chased and worked on until the Summer transfer window opens.

It's easy to throw criticism around without understanding the actual reality behind signing players, According to a reporter from The Sun and then reported by Andy Turner Benjamin Rollheiser was on the verge of signing for £9 million quid until he decided to join Portuguese giants Benfica. You would believe that even tho the initial rumor was reported by The Sun, not to mention the actual reality that we were never in any way near signing Benjamin Rollheiser.

When someone has credible information and isn't just throwing around names like Oscar Bobb, it's worth posting. The fact i was told something will happen regarding a foreign player from a credible person who I 100% wouldn't doubt based on their job it's absolutely worth me posting, the reason why is because this is a group of like minded individuals that support Coventry City football club, we all want the club to sign players and we are all trying to find out who is signing. So when i am told what i am told the first thing i am going to do is post it in this group because i want to find out if anyone else has heard anything similar or knows anything more than what i know. This is how information is shared and pieced together.

When you mention something and then immediately are called an idiot or whatever else, number one it doesn't help anyone and lastly it's kind of counterproductive given the fact the name of this actual thread is called "transfer targets"

That's a lot of words to say you've been had...

and since when have we bid £9 million for a player other than Haji Wright, who was supposed to be our lord and saviour after Gyokeres left and since has been shifted out on the left hand side because of his inability to cut it playing centrally.
1, We have paid less than 9m for Wright.

2, Do you understand about tactics? Do you understand how players needed time to settle in especially coming from a different country and seeing the Championship for the first time. Is Wright useless in the middle when we attack down the right?

Try watching us play. Wright has the ball on the left Sakamoto gets into the middle but towards the right. When Sakamoto has the ball on the right Wright gets into the middle but towards the left. Other players go through the middle. That doesn't make them crap in the middle. Has been working well.

Summer could see Godden O’Hare Tavares Kelly Moore Allen all go couldn’t it? That would be a big clean out in my books.

with the new forward already lined up plus Torp minimum would be a young keeper, a utility forward and utility midfielder. Plus if Binks goes another CB. 7 out 4 in the summer. SBT will want more but they seem to want to improve squad quality with players who will gain value not really increase squad size. Many of our rivals picked up 4-5 players in this window which the club must view as short termism

No utility players! We sign players to take us to the next level. The only difference is whether they are ones for the future or players to start right away.

We have quite a lot of outgoings so next season will be exciting to see how we develop the squad.

What I'm still trying to get used to is not signing loads of dross in the hope that something/anything will stick. The levels of cash we are now trading in we could have only dreamed about a short number of years ago. I'm not going to lie and say I didn't want more from this window but the calm considered approach is much more likely to drive us forward long term. I'd be interested to see our squad value this year Vs last 🤣.

Doubt Binks will go rated very high

In my view we have 2 for each position apart from RW, RB and an out and out goal scoring striker. We were down on a LW but that's now covered by the new lad come thesummer. We are 3 players away from a really dood squad now

When was the last free agent we signed outside of a window.

Feels like an option we just don't use.

We never sign free agents outside the window but I'd be strongly considering it for some depth.

Thought we might have gone for a goalie on loan but Wilson & Moore didn’t move on so it’s it’s as we were keeper wise.
