EXCLUSIVE; Sure Contract Deals on six Coventry City players ahead of 2024 decisions.

Coventry City contract news as CoventryLive takes a look at players who have less than 12 months left on their current deals.

Coventry City appears to have a solid group in place to help them push forward in the Championship this season, albeit some patience may be needed. Following summer moves, several players are still getting their bearings, and the group will take some time to click.

But there were some very positive developments for the Sky Blues at QPR over the weekend, not the least of which was Jamie Allen’s return to the starting lineup for the first time this season after missing the entire preseason due to a health concern. 14 players left the team, either because they were sold or because their contracts expired naturally, causing the club to undergo a significant player turnover.

Given the faith in their skill and talent, all eleven players who joined have been given reasonably long-term contracts. This belief is reflected in many of the transfer fees City paid for them. As a result, Mark Robins only has six players who could leave next June out of the four permanent additions who are currently in the final year of their contracts.

Callum O’Hare’s contract needs to be renewed as a top priority, but City don’t necessarily need to decide on the rest just yet. Here, though, is our assessment of what might transpire about the players whose contracts are set to expire next summer.

Next season, who would you like to see return? Post your comments in the section below.

The goalie joined the Sky Blues in the summer of 2021 and rapidly became the team’s starting goalkeeper after a strong debut season. However, a sharp decline in performance at the beginning of the 22/23 season led to Ben Wilson being given the opportunity, and Moore served as Wilson’s backup for the balance of the season as Wilson went on to post the best season of his career with a club record 22 clean sheets.

. The 33-year-old goalkeeper was made available for transfer in recent months, but chose to stay put despite interest from other clubs due to the signing of Brad Collins from Barnsley this summer. He virtually certainly will leave the club in the upcoming eight months, regardless of whether that circumstance changes come the January transfer window.

Veteran player McFadzean joined Coventry from Burton Albion in the summer of 2019, and during the course of his four years there, he has only become better and better. As a result, Robins has given him contract extensions in back-to-back summers. He is the defensive unit’s center of strength and a no-nonsense leader who mentors and develops the younger center backs on either side of him.

He has a fantastic personality both on and off the field, and despite turning 37 in February, he is still going strong. As Robins searches for his ideal back three, City’s defense has been a little wobbly lately, but McFadzean has remained a constant, and as long as that holds true, he’ll give himself every chance of yet another extension. There is little doubt that the younger defenders on either side of him benefit much from his expertise, and in the future, there may even be a player/coach position.

The Sky Blues captain, who joined the club in the summer of 2017 and helped the team advance from League Two to Championship play-off finals in May when they were just a few penalties away from the Premier League, is City’s longest-tenured player. The 33-year-old played a vital role in the club’s play-off campaign and led the squad out at Wembley Stadium against Luton despite being used infrequently last season.

Ben Sheaf’s injury gave the captain a chance to play a bigger role despite the fact that Josh Eccles and Ben Sheaf had clearly done enough to merit a new 12-month contract. Following Gustavo Hamer’s departure, the midfield is through a challenging period of transition and will undoubtedly require additional strengthening in January. That might significantly affect whether Kelly is given the chance to continue working for another eight years.
