Earlier this summer, we reported here on The72 that Championship duo Leeds United and Middlesbrough were among the sides interested in Coventry City midfielder Tom Bayliss, with a number of Premier League clubs also interested in the 22-year-old.
Now, it has been claimed by The Sun that West Brom are also interested in Tom Bayliss of Coventry City, as are Premier League new boys Sheffield United and Aston Villa.
At the age of just 22, Bayliss has been putting in some decent performances for Coventry City, attracting the attention of a number of clubs from up the Football League ladder. Newcastle United were among those linked with Bayliss in June, as were rivals Liverpool and Everton.
Since his emergence into the Coventry first-team, Bayliss has shown that he has the credentials to become a high-quality midfielder and a number of clubs have been able to see that.
The 20-year-old broke into the Coventry City first team during the 2017/18 season, as manager Mark Robins guided the Sky Blues to promotion to League One. The youngster made 32 appearances, scoring six and assisting four in an impressive debut campaign. He went on to feature regularly for the club in the 2018/19 season as well, playing 41 times in all competitions, scoring three and assisting three.
Given that he has represented England at youth levels, Bayliss is unlikely to be a bargain purchase. The Sky Blues may be tempted to cash in on Bayliss if they receive a big enough offer, but there are not any offers on the table as it stands. That being said, with clubs seemingly queueing up, it may not be long before the resilience of Coventry is tested.
