Coventry City’s hopes of signing Arsenal 23-year-old receive big boost

Arsenal will let go of Ben Sheaf this summer, as per a report by Football London. 

The Gunners will allow him to leave the club on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

Sheaf, who is 23 years old, has spent this campaign on loan in the Championship at Coventry City and has made 29 appearances in all competitions.

The fact that Arsenal are giving him the green light to depart is a boost to the Sky Blues’ hopes of signing him on a permanent basis. Mark Robins’ side do hold an option to purchase him when his loan expires.

Sheaf spent last season on loan in League One at Doncaster Rovers and was a key player for them under Darren Moore. He made 38 appearances for the Yorkshire side, scoring twice and chipping in with three assists.

That earned him a switch to the Championship last summer and he has since been a regular for Coventry this term.
