Keogh Bid Turned Down Flat By Coventry

Keogh Bid Turned Down Flat By Coventry

Bristol City have put in a bid for Coventry City`s defender and player of the season Richard Keogh, but the league one outfit have said the bid was 'derisory'.

The 25-year-old has been Coventry`s best player for two seasons in a row since he joined from Carlisle United two years ago.

He has a year left on his current deal but with Coventry being relegated, they might face a battle to keep the player at the Ricoh Arena.

Sky Blues development director Steve Waggott has told the Coventry Telegraph: 'It was derisory, way below the value we would put on the player if we were of a mind to sell - which is not the case at all.

'We've got a season left with Richard and we are having discussions with him and his agent about what the future looks like from his perspective. We've had approaches, by telephone and e-mail, from three or four interested Championship clubs that haven't led to a formal offer.

'The type of player Richard is he's going to attract attention and we've got to consider all reasonable offers that come in. But he's a terrific asset for us - Andy Thorn (manager) and the directors want Richard to lead us back to the Championship and we want to retain him for as long as we can.'
