Coventry City are ‘keen’ on deep lying playmaker who will soon be out of contract

Coventry City are understood to be interested in Scotland Under-21 international Connor Barron, who is out of contract this summer.

The 21-year-old Aberdeen midfielder has been offered a new deal but interest is growing in the deep-lying playmaker, with the Sky Blues and Championship side Swansea reported to be ‘keen’, according to our sister title the Daily Record. while Bologna, the report claims, have joined the growing list of Italian clubs weighing up a summer move for the player.




Fellow Italians Cagliari and Sassuolo have already declared an interest in him, but any bid should ensure top-flight survival. Bologna have had impressive feedback on the midfielder who has been a standout in the Reds’ recent renaissance.

Aberdeen have two more league games to play this season before Barron’s contract is up, with the player available to be signed for just over £500,000 in training compensation.

The report says that “Swansea City and Coventry City are among the English sides who are also keen on Barron, who already has pre-contracts on the table.”

He is said to have taken his game to another level in recent weeks, playing regularly and shining under interim Aberdeen manager Peter Leven. Aberdeen have offered the Scotland Under-21 star and vice-captain a new deal, but it now looks increasingly likely that he will move on.
