Coventry City contract news via CoventryLive as Sky Blues boss Mark Robins delivers an update on Callum O’Hare discussions.

Mark Robins believes that Coventry City want to keep Callum O’Hare and assures supporters that he and the club have done “everything we can” to get him a new contract. In an update on the star midfielder’s contract predicament, the Sky Blues manager concedes the choice is now in the hands of the player.

The 25-year-old is said to have been offered new terms, but as things stand, he could be set to leave the CBS Arena as a free agent when his current deal expires in the summer. When asked about O’Hare’s contract position during today’s pre-match news conference before of the Leicester City match, the manager stated, “You’ll have to ask Callum.”

When pressed further and asked if the club was still talking to him, Robins replied, “I honestly have nothing to say on it.” If you ask Callum, he simply wants to focus on his football. That’s all there is to it, and I’m not going to put him under any undue pressure; he’ll do what he does.

“However, rest assured that we have done everything possible.” So, at the end of the day, it will be up to Callum. We can say and do whatever we want, but there’s no denying that we want him to stay. We have made it quite obvious that we want him to stay.

“But look, he needs to focus on his football.” He’s only recently returned from injury, and he’s fought so hard to bring himself back into this position, and he’s showing amazing promise.”

Reflecting on O’Hare’s ten-month absence due to a ruptured ACL, the manager added, “He was devastated by his injury because football was taken away from him, and it was horrible to watch, really hard to watch because someone who is effervescent all the time was really flat.”

“And it wasn’t until he started working on his comeback that we saw Callum again.” He was ecstatic at Wembley (at the play-off final) and wanted us to be in the Premier League when he returned, which would have made his year. That reveals a lot about him. But it was also palpable that we were keen to play in the Premier League and that didn’t happen, which was upsetting for everyone.

“Since then, he’s kept his head down and worked hard.” He went to Tenerife last season to get some sunshine and heat on his bones, and then went away on a camp prior to pre-season with a few of others and some of the staff, and his rehabilitation experiences have been a bit better than some, thanks to Doug (King’s) backing.”
