New figures emerge on Coventry City transfer fee paid for Jack Rudoni

New figures have emerged that suggest Coventry City are paying Huddersfield Town a lot less for Jack Rudoni than has previously been reported.

The Sky Blues secured their third summer signing last week when they completed a deal for the 23-year-old, who has joined the Championship club on a four year deal, with an option of a further 12 months.

Initial reports from The Sun earlier this month claimed Mark Robins was keen on the attacking midfielder as a replacement for Callum O’Hare but said that The Terriers had put a £10million price tag on the player and therefore City were switching their attention elsewhere.

However, South London News footballer writer Richard Cawley, who covers the player’s former club AFC Wimbledon, reported on Thursday that the Sky Blues had struck a deal with Town for a fee of ‘around £5million’ ahead of a medical.

The player duly passed his medical and City confirmed the transfer the same evening, insisting they had agreed an undisclosed fee for his services.

The Sun’s Alan Nixon maintained the deal was worth an initial £6m and could rise to £10m, while sources in West Yorkshire suggested the fee was a lot less that £5m, and nearer to £4m.

The BBC, meanwhile, claim the figure to be even lower, with Nick Mashiter and his colleague Nizaar Kinsella posting on the social media platform X, formerly Twitter : Initial fee for Rudoni around £3.6m-£3.8m with a few add-ons. Transfer won’t reach as much as £5m.
