The 21-year-old midfielder joined Peterborough United on loan in the summer.

He has only made three starts for the Championship outfit though.

Coventry has made eight league appearances in total, playing just 317 minutes for the Posh.

That’s just not enough football for Conor. He’s 21 now and no longer a raw teenage talent.

He needs to be playing regularly and West Ham need to make that happen for him.

David Moyes should bring the Republic of Ireland under-21 international in January.

West Ham inserted a recall clause in Coventry’s loan deal to Peterborough (Claret and Hugh), so it’s certainly feasible that he could return.

Moyes has Alex Kral and Mark Noble as back up options for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek.

If truth be told, however, the latter isn’t at the the level required for Premier League football anymore, as harsh as that may sound.

And the jury is still very much out on the former.

Now, Moyes could bring back Coventry and use him as part of his first-team squad.

Or, he could loan him out to another club where he is guaranteed to play more regularly.

 

Sitting on the bench in the Championship will do Coventry no good whatsoever.

West Ham are expected to be busy in the January transfer window.

Perhaps one of the best pieces of business that we can do for our future is to bring Coventry back home though.

It would surely be the right decision for West Ham as a club and Coventry as a player.
