Sky Blues reject approaches for Callum Wilson

THE SKY Blues face a fight to hold on to star striker Callum Wilson following a high level of interest from the Championship.

The Observer has been told that four Championships clubs have expressed an interest in the 21-year-old who bagged 22 goals in all competitions last season.

Bournemouth reportedly made an offer, which was believed to be a seven figure sum, for Wilson over the weekend which was rejected by the club.

And all other enquiries have been rejected to date as Steven Pressley looks to build a squad around the Coventry-born striker.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Joe Murphy and Franck Moussa have yet to make a decision over their future at the League One club.

Murphy is expected to sign a deal to link up with former boss Mark Robins at Huddersfield Town and deputise as number two behind Alex Smithies.

His form last season earned him an international recall to the Republic of Ireland squad under Martin O’Neil.

While Franck Moussa has also attracted interest from the Championship following another impressive season in midfield where he scored 14 goals including the Football League’s Goal of the Season award.

Current boss Steven Pressley has stated he wants both players to stay but the lure of Championship football and a higher wage are two major areas where the Sky Blues cannot compete.
