Coventry City allow manager Robins to speak to Huddersfield Town '"with great reluctance"

Coventry City have “with great reluctance” allowed Huddersfield to speak to manager Mark Robins.

The 43-year-old, who is five months into a three-year contract, informed CCFC that he wished to explore the possibility of joining the Championship club despite efforts to keep him.

Sky Blues Chief Executive Tim Fisher said: “We have had more than one club interested in Mark in the last few weeks and we have made every effort to ensure he stays with us.

“We talked to him at length today and he met the owner. Once we had done everything we could and it was obvious that he was still interested in talking to Huddersfield, we had no choice other than to let him do so.

“We are just hoping that when he weighs up his options and opportunities, he will see the great progress to date and the support he has from fans and management alike, coupled with the potential in Coventry, and decide to stay.”
