A £2m bid for Coventry City striker Gary McSheffrey from local rivals Birmingham has been turned down.

Acting chairman Geoffrey Robinson said: ‘Gary McSheffrey is not for sale, he is central to our plans and a key element in ‘Operation Premiership’.’

The 23-year-old notched 17 goals last season operating from a wide-left position and is wanted by Blues boss Steve Bruce as he looks to strengthen his attacking options in the wake of Emile Heskey’s move to Wigan.

  • 17 goal hero’s don’t grow on trees, but then multi million pound offers are also rare for championship players. not worth selling unless a few half million pound players are just about to sign as replacements.

  • £2m is a bit low considering Andy Johnson went for £8.5m albeit he did do it in the Premiership a couple of seasons ago.

  • he is worth 10 to 15m he is a great player and is well able to compete in the top levels.dont sell him.

  • seems that Adams is putting together a decent young squad so you need to keep your best players. Blues wouldn’t be that much of an upward step
