McSheffrey moves to Brum

Our local side Coventry City have announced today that Gary McSheffrey has been sold to Birmingham City for £4m. Undoubtably this is a massive blow for Coventry's immediate prospects, but with that sort of money on the table you can see why the board took it. £4m is a huge amount of money for a Championship side and really Coventry had no choice, but to accept. Hopefully they will be able to invest well.

    If it had happened out of the blue I’d be gutted and agree it’s a massive blow – however if the £4m is invested in the side it can quite easily be a positive. McShefchenko’s a replaceable player; I think him being a local boy (I used to play football with him – skinned him one time too) is the main thing,

    If we’d signed him from another club on a free 4 years ago, there wouldn’t be the furore there is. Potentially good deal for all involved.

    I think McS has been the most enjoyable player to watch when I’ve had the chance to see Coventry play last season. Good signing for B’ham who need to replace Penant etc.
