Breaking News: Coventry City Target Price Revealed

Coventry City will have to pay at least £5 million to get Barnsley captain Liam Kitching before the transfer deadline, according to Coventry Live.

The Sky Blues have had two earlier bids for the defender rejected, including a £4m offer yesterday, but with Barnsley unwilling to part ways with their captain, the Championship side may be tempted to make an improved third offer.

Who exactly is Liam Kitching?
The Barnsley captain began his career with Leeds United, then moved on to Harrogate Town and Forest Green Rovers before joining Barnsley in January 2021.

Kitching has since been named captain of the League One club and has made nearly 100 appearances at Oakwell.

Kitching has since been named captain of the League One side and has made nearly 100 appearances for the club, playing in both the Championship and League One, reaching the play-off final before losing to Sheffield Wednesday. He’s only scored once in four games this season.

Is the third time the charm?
Mark Robins has made it clear that he wants to bring in a left-sided defender, and rumors that left wing-back Jake Bidwell has been granted permission to leave the Sky Blues strengthen the assumption that another defender will be brought in.

Barnsley have been clear that Kitching will not be sold, but a £5 million bid would be exceedingly difficult for the League to turn down.

Author’s Opinion
£5 million for a League One defender appears to be a large amount to pay, but keep in mind that Forest Green Rovers apparently have a sell-on percentage and he has just signed a new long-term contract at Oakwell.

As a Coventry fan, I still believe Liam Kitching is the ideal fit to our back three/five. Last season, he formed a fantastic friendship with Bobby Thomas, who had already joined the Championship side earlier in the transfer window.
