Coventry City ace Callum O’Hare is set to leave this summer

Coventry City chief executive Callum O’Hare has told his current club he will leave this summer, amid interest from Southampton, Aston Villa and West Ham, according to a report from Football Insider.

Coventry City are set to lose the attacking midfielder at the end of the season.

O’Hare, 26, is out of contract at the end of June and will become a free agent while he weighs his options.

Football Insider claims he has turned down the offer of three new deals from the Sky Blues as he prepares to walk out the exit door for the next campaign.

The loss of O’Hare will be a huge blow to Coventry City as they look to challenge for promotion next year. They missed the play-offs this season but reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Mark Robins’ side lost Gustavo Hamer and Viktor Gyokeres last summer and could see another key figure leave in the near future.

The Sky Blues signed O’Hare from Aston Villa in 2020 and his former club have renewed their interest in him.

He rose through the Villa Park academy and was a regular for the Midlands side at various youth levels before making nine appearances for the first team as a youngster, as well as having loan spells at Carlisle United and Coventry City to gain some experience doing.

The latter then hired him permanently following their promotion from League One and he has since adapted to life in the Championship with ease.

O’Hare has made 140 appearances during his time at the Coventry Building Society Arena, scoring 18 goals.

The Sky Blues are set to lose him when this season is over, with the likes of Southampton, Aston Villa and West Ham eyeing it. Football Scotland claims Celtic are also admirers.

Coventry City lost 2-1 to Ipswich Town at home last night and will be back in action this weekend against QPR on the final day.
