Coventry City: Mark Robins opens up on Gus Hamer contract negotiations amid Burnley transfer interest
Coventry City boss Mark Robins has been discussing the chance of Gus Hamer signing a new deal with the Sky Blues.
Heading into the summer, Coventry City knew that both Viktor Gyokeres and Gus Hamer were very likely to attract attention in the transfer market.
So far, that has proven to be the case.
Gyokeres recently completed a big money move to Portugal to join Sporting CP. Meanwhile, recently, Hamer has begun to attract transfer interest of his own.
Fulham, Leeds and Burnley are three sides that have been rumoured to have an interest in the midfielder, but so far, it seems as though the latter of those clubs have been the most active in their pursuit.
Burnley pushing to sign Hamer
Indeed, in recent days, the Clarets have been linked with a potential £15 million pound move for Hamer.
That link came via the Daily Mail, who claim that Burnley defender’s Luke McNally – who spent the second half of last season on loan at Coventry – and Bobby Thomas could be potentially included as some sort of players plus cash deal.
Interestingly, though, reports late on Tuesday suggested that Coventry City had turned down such an offer.
TEAMtalk reported that the Sky Blues have snubbed any prospect of a player plus cash deal, with the club wanting a straight up cash deal if they are to allow Hamer to leave this summer.
