Sky Blues accept two offers for Callum Wilson

Coventry Editorial 3rd Jul, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

CALLUM Wilson could be set to leave the Sky Blues after the cash-strapped League One club gave the young striker permission to speak with both Norwich City and Bournemouth.

The Observer understands the Sky Blues have accepted two bids, believed to be in the region of £3million pounds, for the 22-year-old who has been subject to much interest over the summer.

Wilson, who bagged 22 goals in all competitions last season, will now speak with both Norwich City and Bournemouth over a possible move this summer, while Nottingham Forest and Wolves will be on red alert having also expressed an interest.

Last month the club turned down seven-figure bids for their most prized asset as manager Steven Pressley looks to build a squad capable of promotion to the Championship.

But it appears £3million proved to be too big an offer to refuse and now Wilson will decide his future a day before the first team squad return back for pre-season training on Friday.
