Coventry City can confirm that it has reluctantly accepted a bid from Championship side Reading for Striker Marc McNulty.
Marc will now discuss personal terms with Reading.
Coventry City rejected three bids last week for the Striker from the club. The offer which has been accepted is significantly higher, and follows confirmation from Marc that he wished to discuss personal terms with The Royals.
Coventry City had offered McNulty a new contract on significantly increased terms, but it was made clear by the player’s agent that this would not be accepted.
Manager Mark Robins said:
“We have today accepted a bid for Marc, after he stated his desire to talk to Reading.
“While I know our fans will be disappointed, I can assure them that we have received a more than acceptable bid for Marc and that the money will be invested in the playing squad. I was never under any pressure to sell Marc, other than from the player's agent.
“I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to Marc for his contribution to what the club achieved last season and his dedication to the team during his time here. He has been great to work with and showed real development from when we signed him last summer.
“While Marc leaves us, this is an opportunity for another player to come in and improve our squad even further, as we look to continue the progress which we have made back in League One.”
