Keogh Ready For New Deal

Last updated : 08 February 2012 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City defender Richard Keogh has said that he is ready to sort out a new contract extension with the Sky Blues. 

Many City supporters are thoroughly expecting Keogh, who is expected to be amongst the Player Of The Season awards, to leave if City are relegated, feeling he is too good for League One football but the defender has said that he wants to sign an extension to a contract that still have sixteen months left on it. 

Speaking to the CT’s Alan Poole, Keogh said: “I didn’t hear anything personally but I was told there was a bit of interest during the last transfer window,” said Keogh, who has played every minute of every Championship match since arriving on a free transfer from Carlisle in the summer of 2010. 

“That was flattering and it was good to hear what the manager was saying about me. He didn’t have to say that and I really appreciate it – it made me feel very proud. 

“I understand the club want to talk about a new deal and once the dust has settled we can sit down and have a conversation.

“I’m settled here, I’m playing the best football of my career and I’m very grateful to Coventry for giving me that chance. 

“For now I’m looking forward to the rest of the season, helping to get the club out of the position we’re in.”
