But despite the reported interest in England youth international Bayliss, Sky Blues manager Mark Robins has revealed that the club are yet to receive any contact over the midfielder.

Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph, Robins said:

No-one has asked us the question. It’s speculation.

“As far as I am aware no-one has made any inquiries to the club all summer, or for a fair period of time.

“But that doesn’t mean to say that there isn’t any interest. But at the minute no-one has contacted us.”

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.
