1 May 2014

The City boss has stressed that the club needs to keep it's best players at the club to progress....

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has revealed he 'fully expects' to see striker Callum Wilson playing for the Sky Blues next season.

The City boss is currently preparing his side for the final game of the 2013/14 League One season against Sheffield United.

The Sky Blues go into the game having already secured League One safety with the 1-1 draw against champions Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

The City boss is set to start his 22-goal striker at Bramall Lane and he has revealed he had discussions with the club's owners over Wilson.

Pressley said: "Of course, we've already began planning for next season and we fully expect Callum to be at the club.

"I've had conversations with the club's owners regarding his position and we're truly determined to keep him here. 

"He is going to be pivotal if we are going to mount a challenge next season. He has shown this year what he is capable of and I think there is more to come from him.

"We've got to keep our best players in the building if we're going to progress this club forward."

The Academy graduate has had an incredible break-through season with the Sky Blues and was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year for the 2013/14 season.

Having overseen his progression in the City side this season, Pressley says he also expects to see plenty of interest in him throughout the summer.

He added: "I would expect that there maybe offers and interest regarding Callum but making an offer is one thing, meeting our expectation is another.

"We don't want to sell the player. He has had a great season where he has fulfilled his potential but there is a lot more to come from him.

"I think he can become an even better player than he is right now. He has only had one season in the first-team and given more time, Callum should get even better."
