Coventry City are interested in making a move for Walsall midfielder Liam Kinsella as reported by the Express & Star.
Kinsella is yet to sign a new deal with the Saddlers and Coventry are amongst several League One club’s monitoring the Republic of Ireland youth international’s situation.
Kinsella was one of the few bright spots in a disappointing campaign for Walsall which saw them relegated to League Two. He made thirty-nine appearances and turned in several eye-catching displays, form that saw him named Walsall’s Young Player of the Season.
Popular amongst the supporters, Kinsella has been with the Saddlers since he was eight and the report suggests he is still expected to stay. However, if he does decide to leave Walsall would be entitled to compensation because of his age.
Coventry may be looking at midfield replacements with constant speculation over the future of Tom Bayliss, Aston Villa being the latest club linked to the talented Sky Blue youngster.
Kinsella is a good League One player and could be an ideal addition to Mark Robins’ squad if, as expected, Tom Bayliss departs.
He is still young and could develop into a star with the Sky Blues.
Walsall fans will want him to stay, but with more lucrative offers likely to be on the table they will be bracing themselves for news of his departure.
The recent signing of Stuart Sinclair will only add to the speculation they are about to cash in on Kinsella.
