A group of Australians is looking into purchasing the Sky Blues

A consortium of business leaders in Australia is considering buying Coventry City FC, a newspaper in Melbourne has claimed.

The Herald Sun said in an article over the weekend that the Australian Football Consortium Ltd was considering buying a number of clubs, including the Sky Blues but also Charlton Athletic.

The consortium is led by a management consultant named Gerard Murphy.

It is believed that if the consortium makes the purchase it would not appoint an Australian manager straight away.

The paper says the group’s members are “eager to win over their new clubs’ fans and will appoint someone who appeals to the diehards”.

Deloitte has been appointed to conduct a study into the clubs, as well as four others, on behalf of the consortium.
