Coventry City were one of several teams to have been linked with a move for play-off hero Connor Jennings last week, but it seems their interest has cooled.
Jennings has been linked with a host of League One clubs following another impressive season at Prenton Park. He scored the winning goal at Wembley in May to secure promotion, but his importance to the team throughout the last couple of years cannot be downplayed.
Coventry were one of four clubs, alongside Portsmouth, Hibernian and Rotherham, who were reported by the website “Football Insider” to be interested in the player.
However, a report by Coventry Live has recently stated that Jennings is not on Coventry’s radar.
As for the speculation with any other clubs, nothing seems to have developed. The initial link reputedly came from a source close to the player, but it’s literally the only place it was reported. Hopefully, it’s a load of nonsense.
Even if there is any truth in the rumours, Tranmere would be due a fee if Jennings were to leave this summer. The former Wrexham man has one year remaining on his contract. We’d like to think that there is as much chance of Rovers extending Jennings’ deal than playing the same game we have with Cook and Norwood recently. And we know what happened there.
As for other outgoings, Cole Stockton completed his move to Morecambe this week (you read it here first), while we believe the resolution in Blackpool’s ownership situation makes Ben Tollitt’s move to the Seaside more likely, though Salford remain keen and have offered terms.
It’s all a little quiet in regard to incomings, but we’ll give you an update later today.
