The transfer rumours are starting to begin in earnest as the season draws to a close and Coventry City have been linked with Oxford United’s versatile defender Luke Foster.

The 22-year-old former Sheffield Wednesday youngster, who can also play in midfield, was recently crowned as both the Supporters’ and Players’ Player of the Year at the Blue Square Premier club.

  • Foster is a decent player, just winning the players, player and fans player of the season. since gaining a regular place Uniteds defence has looked very good (shame about the rest of the team) he possibly the only united player capable of making such a jump. would be a decent punt IMO.

  • Certainly seems to be the way Cov are thinking nowadays, promising younger players from the lower leagues.

  • obviously he would be a gamble, but he wouldnt cost a huge fee I would guess 200-250k max, which would be a steal. he looks comfortable at conference level and is easily a couple of levels above. the fact he won the two player of the year awards is all the more outstanding is that he hardly played for the first 3 mths as previous manager jim smith didnt play him, critisising his attitude, since JS moved upstairs, he has been a first choice and the defence has looked oxfirds only solid area.
