21 June 2022

The Sky Blues first summer signing, Kasey Palmer, told how he was ‘buzzing’ to finally get his move to Coventry completed.

The midfielder has agreed a three-year deal with the Sky Blues, completing his move from Ashton Gate earlier today.

Palmer told how a chat with the Manager and Adi Viveash cemented his thoughts that a move to Coventry was the right one for him.

“I’m buzzing to get it over the line.” Palmer said.

“Since the first time I spoke with the Manager and spoke with my old coach Adi, I’ve been keen to get it done and get here.

“I pretty much knew from doing my research and after speaking to him, he confirmed the style of play and how much I would be involved and be a part of his plans.

“The manager wants to play good football, play out from the back and play through the thirds with the number 10s getting in the pockets.

“So, it was just the icing on the cake when I met him, but I did quite a lot of research after playing against the club and doing due diligence to get to this point, so I knew quite a lot.”

Having mentioned his ‘old coach’ Adi Viveash, Palmer revealed how there are several familiar faces within the side and that they played their role in his move to the club.

“Adi is massive.

“From my development at Chelsea, he played a big role, and he knows what I can do and I know what he demands from me, so I feel like that’s important for me taking this next step and he was a big factor in me coming here.

“I’ve spoke to three or four of the lads here about coming and they’ve told me stuff about the club and how it will suit me, and it’s all been positive from what I’ve heard from the players that are here and I’m just delighted to be here and I can’t wait to get going.”

Now, with the first day of pre-season on the horizon, Kasey is looking forward to getting back out on the grass and meeting his new teammates following a summer break.

“I’m refreshed I had a nice break and had a busy summer and I’m just keen to get going and put on the shirt at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

“It’s a nervous wait because I’ve known the move was going to happen for a while and I’ve been on holiday waiting and now I just want to get going.

“I just have to get the pre-season runs out the way and get going with the main season which I think will come quite quickly and hopefully we can have a good one.”
