Coventry City’s decision to seal £5m+ transfer deal haunt others



Although Coventry City is now in a strong position, they must keep improving if they want to make it to the Premier League.

They have occasionally played with a back four this season, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see them remain with the latter for the upcoming season or two after having previously found success with a back three.

They have players who can fill a variety of roles, so Mark Robins should be able to switch systems as needed.

Even with Gus Hamer and Viktor Gyokeres’ summertime exits, Robins currently has an outstanding team at his disposal.

The Sky Blues’ summer additions further demonstrate owner Doug King’s willingness to invest and his dedication to turning the team into a true success.

It was King’s desire to be prudent and cash in on valuable players that made the big-money signings of Wright and Simms feasible. They also utilized the proceeds from the sale to sign Ephron Mason-Clark from Peterborough United in January.

Although he was returned to Darren Ferguson’s team on loan in January, he might make a significant contribution if he joins during the summer transfer window.


Mason-Clark can play center, which might be useful if the Sky Blues stick with their 3-4-1-2 style and Callum O’Hare leaves.

He is most likely being brought in to play as a left winger, though, as this was previously a necessity that needed to be addressed.
Coventry needs two effective wingers if they plan to play in a back-four configuration.

O’Hare’s contract expires in the summer, so there’s no guarantee he’ll be at the Coventry Building Society Arena next season, even though he can play out wide. He’s also just as productive centrally.

When Tatsuhiro Sakamoto returns to fitness, having Mason-Clark on the left and Sakamoto on the right may be ideal for Coventry, who will still need to be very effective in the last third if O’Hare departs.

This season, the 24-year-old has been nothing short of amazing.

The winger, who enjoys scoring goals and helping others, has contributed significantly for Posh this season and has even held the captaincy multiple times.
When Coventry comes to the CBS Arena in the summer, he might be a true leader in the locker room, so it can only be to his advantage.
His leadership might be needed, as the seasoned Kyle McFadzean recently left for Blackburn Rovers.

And at 24, Mason-Clark should only get better, which will terrify many Championship full-backs who will come up against him.

Given that he is expected to continue improving in the upcoming years, Coventry should be able to recoup the alleged £5 million+ that they spent on him.

This is a major factor in why other teams would be kicking themselves for missing out on him, and it makes sense for the Sky Blues to finalize a deal well in advance of the summer.
