Coventry City have been handed a major boost with the news that the transfer embargo that has been placed on the club has now been lifted by the football league. Coventry City were relegated from the Championship after going into administration, while the club also almost went into liquidation. However, Coventry City fans can now rejoice at the prospect of being able to see new players at the club, as they look to rebuild for the future. Coventry City have already revealed that they have lost the opportunity to bring into new players this summer as a result of the transfer embargo.
James Collins and David Syers decided to move to Swindon and Doncaster from Shrewsbury and Bradford respectively. Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has said that even though he is still a disappointed that he was not able to bring in the two players in the summer, he hopes that the transfer embargo being lifted does not come too late. Due to the fact that there are still a number of weeks before many key players can be thought into the club, Andy Thorn believes that it is a great news for the club.
“This is positive news for the club on many levels. The lifting of the embargo means we can start to move forward with plans we have for the new season. Andy Thorn and Steve Waggott can now push on with implementing the squad plans they have worked so hard to put together in readiness for this decision,” said the chief executive of the club, Tim Fisher on the official site of Coventry City. The club lost key defenders last season and it will be an area that they will be looking to strengthen before the start of the new season according to Andy Thorn.
