Former Coventry City forward Danny Cashman is set to sign for National League South side Worthing on a free transfer, according to Coventry Live journalist Andy Turner.
The 22-year-old was mutually released by the Sky Blues yesterday and is expected to return to the South of England, following successive loan spells away from the club.
Who is Danny Cashman?
The forward joined the Sky Blues from Brighton Hove Albion on a free transfer before making an immediate loan switch to Rochdale. He then underwent loan spells with Walsall and Altrincham, making a combined 46 appearances and contributing to nine goals.
He failed to make a first-team appearance for the Championship side, instead playing a key role for the club’s U21s, scoring once in two appearances so far this season.
A mixture of starts
Coventry City are currently 12th in the Championship standings, taking five points from their opening four league games. Despite a defeat at Leicester, Coventry beat Middlesbrough before drawing to Swansea and Sunderland. The Sky Blues host Watford this afternoon.
Meanwhile, Worthing are currently top of the National League South, winning five of their first six league games, sitting one point clear and travel to Braintree Town on Saturday afternoon.
What’s been said?
Journalist Andy Turner posted a tweet to confirm the news on Twitter stating…
‘Danny Cashman understood to be joining non-league Worthing.’
Danny Cashman joined the Sky Blues with excitement, after earning plenty of positive reviews during his rise at Brighton Hove Albion. However, he struggled whilst out on loan due to factors outside of his control (tactical changes), which has unfortunately stumped his development path.
However, Cashman is an exciting, young player who has shown a lot of good qualities throughout his time with the U21s or whilst out on loan. He is also moving closer to home and I personally believe this is an excellent addition for the National League South side.
