Latest on Callum O’Hare, Renat Dadashov and every player linked with a Coventry City transfer

Coventry City have already secured two signings this summer with Gustavo Hamer and Julien Dacosta both completing their Sky Blues moves.

But Mark Robins will still be keen to strengthen in a number of areas this summer.

The City boss will almost certainly be in the market for a striker, another full-back and a number of attacking midfielders before their voyage into the Championship begins.

But what is the latest on those linked with Coventry moves? Here is the latest we know.

Renat Dadashov

Wolves youngster Renat Dadashov is understood to be on Coventry’s radar this summer, but the Sky Blues will face competition from Birmingham City according to reports in his home country, Azerbaijan.

The forward was a youth star in Germany before making his breakthrough in Portugal with Estoril. It is there where he caught the eye of Wolves.

Any move for Dadashov will be a loan move, most likely, with Nuno Espirito Santo understood to be keen to keep the forward who is pinned down on a long-term deal and allow him first-team action on loan.

Callum O’Hare

Word on Callum O’Hare’s future appears to have fallen silent from all sides in recent weeks.

The Sky Blues remain keen on bringing the former Aston Villa man, who is now a free agent, back to Ryton-on-Dunsmore but as of yet no deal has been signed.

Rumours on social media, often by account who few could deem trustworthy, have linked the 22-year-old with the likes of Norwich City, Nottingham Forest and Birmingham City – but no such links have actually been made.

And while those clubs may be monitoring O’Hare closely (who wouldn’t be?) and may well offer him a deal, if City miss out on their man this summer then Robins will almost certainly have alternatives in mind.

Tom Flanagan

Sunderland are confident that Tom Flanagan will put pen to paper on a new deal at the Stadium of Light in the coming days – but still, the player remains free to talk to rival clubs.

Coventry were said to be poised to offer the 28-year-old a home according to reports in the North East with Birmingham City also said to be keen.

But it now looks likely that he will remain with the Black Cats.

“I don’t think we’re too far away with Flanagan,” his boss, Phil Parkinson, told BBC Newcastle on Thursday night.

“Flanno is a good lad, he’s been reasonable, and we need to get that deal progressed sooner rather than later.”

Ike Ugbo

Championship trio Nottingham Forest, Derby County and West Bromwich Albion are said to have joined Coventry in the race to sign Chelsea loan star Ike Ugbo – but so now have West Ham, according to TeamTalk.

The 21-year-old is understood to be on the Sky Blues’ radar this summer with Robins likely to add at least one striker to his squad.

But Coventry will face competition from three of their rivals who are all said to have enquired about Ugbo’s services in recent weeks, according to a report cited by Nottingham Post.

Frank Lampard said to be keen to see the talented youngster sent out on loan next term.

Samuel Yohou

City have already lured one Frenchman to the club this summer, with Dacosta being unveiled on Monday, but if they do add another it looks unlikely that it will be Samuel Yohou.

The former Paris FC defender is now in search of a new club after being released in the French capital, but CoventryLive understands that, for now, his name can be crossed off the list.

The club have had their eyes on Yohou, paritcularly earlier this summer, but he is no longer considered to be a target.
