Coventry hint at summer sale for Spurs target Westwood

Coventry City chairman Ray Ranson admits they could sell goalkeeper Keiren Westwood.

Ranson insists he will not let star Westwood leave for free next summer with a host of Barclays Premier League clubs understood to be chasing his signature.

The Republic of Ireland stopper, 25, was the subject of a failed 11th-hour bid from Tottenham for his services back in January.

"All it is at the moment is speculation, we are desperately trying to get him to sign a new contract as he's got 12 months left," said the Sky Blues chief.

"Until he or his agent turn around to us and say he's definitely not signing a new contract then we are very optimistic.

"But there is interest in him and rightly so, he's an international goalkeeper now and he's the best goalkeeper outside the Premier League - and he's only getting better.

"So it's no surprise all the big clubs want him. We're not soliciting any firm bids but we are expecting it now the window's opened."
