INTERVIEW: Mark Robins Talks Transfers

The boss discusses Deadline Day...

16 October 2020

Today marks the close of the deadline for transfers in the EFL and City boss Mark Robins revealed there will be no incomings today at Coventry City.


The manager ruled out anyone coming into the Sky Blues today, insisting if there is to be any business it will be outgoings.

However, as things stand at the moment, Robins told how there are no plans in place for anyone to leave as things stand.

“I’m not expecting any business, but I’m not ruling anything out and I’m talking about out not in, I can absolutely rule out that there won’t be anyone coming in.

“What we have to do is cut our cloth accordingly and if people come in for any of our players then obviously that will be a discussion to have with the player and their representatives and see if they move out but it has to be right for us as well.

“There’s nothing on the horizon, but you never know.”

One player who did depart on the final day of the previous window was Brandon Mason who left for Scottish Premier League side, St Mirren.

The left-back has been recovering with the Sky Blues since his move was announced but he is heading up to Scotland this weekend to link-up with his new teammates.

“Hopefully it will be a good move for him, he needs to play, and he wants to play so let’s see how he goes.

“It’s an interesting one for him and St Mirren, I think he can certainly help them and hopefully it will be a fruitful time for him up there, he will have some good games.”

Robins did reveal that there had been interest in Max Biamou, however he isn’t looking to move on the striker, but finances can change things.

“In terms of Max there is interest in him, but as of yet there’s nothing that has made us or him decide that’s the right course of action.

“I’m not in any rush to move Max out, he’s a player who’s done brilliantly for me, for the football club and he loves it here and the supporters have a great relationship with him.

“Sometimes the fact that finances of a football club determine some decisions that are made and Max maybe one of those players that if he did go out it would be for a financial reason, but it’s a difficult one because Max is a good player and he’s done brilliantly here and he’s played a significant part each step of the way in our rise back to the championship and it would be a difficult day if he was to move on.”
