West Ham boss David Moyes has a big to decision to make with Conor Coventry allegedly in talks to join MK Dons in the January transfer window.
The 21-year-old Hammers youngster is currently in talks to join MK Dons, according to a report from Football Insider.
Coventry spent the first half of the season on loan with Championship outfit Peterborough United but he returned to the London Stadium earlier this month haven’t barely featured for Darren Ferguson’s side.
The next step in the West Ham youngster’s career will be an incredibly important one. And it seems as though he is closing in on making a move away from the London Stadium…
David Moyes has big January window decision to make regarding Conor Coventry
Having clearly sent the 21-year-old to the wrong club in the summer, should the Scot just keep hold of him and integrate him into the West Ham first-team now?
Or should he try again and send him out to League One?
What will be best for his development, regular football in England’s third tier or training alongside the numerous top-class players we currently have amongst our ranks at the London Stadium?
We think that move to MK Dons would be ideal for Coventry.
The Buckinghamshire outfit are currently sitting in seventh spot in the League One table just three points outside the promotion play-off places.
Liam Manning’s side play an attractive brand of attacking football. Considering the fact that they are striving to finish inside the top six, moving to Stadium MK could be the making of young Coventry.
The 21-year-old will be playing in a pressure-cooked environment, week in, week out.
The physical side of League One football will do him the world of good as well.
We think that sending Coventry on loan to MK Dons is somewhat of a no-brainer for David Moyes this month.
The Scot has plenty of cover for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek in central midfield including the likes of Alex Kral, Manuel Lanzini and even Pablo Fornals who can play there if need be.
All we can hope for is that Coventry receives regular game time if he does indeed move to Stadium MK – something that wasn’t the case for him at Peterborough.
