Another very positive week on the transfer front for Coventry City saw manager Mark Robins sign Abu Ogogo from Shrewsbury Town on a permanent deal and also secure the season-long loan of Chelsea youngster Dujon Sterling.
Midfielder Ogogo becomes the second player who featured regularly for the Shrews in League One last season to move to the Ricoh Arena, following in the footsteps of Junior Brown who also turned down a new contract in Shropshire, and it is testament to how City have once again become an attractive proposition for players.
The arrival of right-sided defender Sterling backs that up in the sense that the Ricoh is seen as a good destination for a promising young player to continue his development.
Marc McNulty’s prolific season has inevitably led to interest in the Scottish striker and City say they have rejected three bids from Championship club Reading recently.
Having previously endured a hugely frustrating spell at Sheffield United it may be that McNulty would prefer to stay in CV6 where he will be a regular starter in the upcoming campaign but the lure of the Championship will obviously be a draw too and Mark Robins is realistic enough to know that ever-increasing bids will eventually see one accepted.
