Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy graduate Bright Enobakhare had a mixed campaign in 2018/19. There was a failed loan spell out with Scottish side Kilmarnock, but then the young attacker found his feet in a second spell with Coventry City.
The 21-year-old has fallen out of favour at the Molineux following our own upturn in fortunes in recent years, but he does still boast 21 starting appearances, with a further 28 showings from the substitutes bench to his name but he has only returned one goal.
His spell in the first half of the year at Kilmarnock saw him make only two appearances in the starting XI, with four further showings from the bench, but it all changed at the Ricoh Arena where he made 18 starts, returning six goals.
Coventry manager Mark Robins was very complimentary about the player and his efforts and despite the club enacting our 12 month option on him the other week, the expectation was there would probably still be a sale this summer, especially in light of Bright’s own words about his future.
The option just seemed an easy way to ensure some kind of fee and potentially a sell on clause for the future.
That assumption may well be how Coventry Chief Executive Officer Dave Boddy views things at Coventry, as the Birmingham Mail have reported that he hasn’t yet given up hope of seeing Enobakhare return for 2019/20.
Asked if their interest had ended, he replied.
“Absolutely not! We could still potentially buy him or take him on loan again. It depends on what he wants to do really. I think Wolves are waiting to see what he does.”
