Coventry manager Chris Coleman admits that he expects plenty of speculation this summer surrounding the Championship club's four most prized assets.

City are set to offer goalkeeper Keiren Westwood, defenders Dan Fox and Scott Dann and midfielder Aron Gunnarsson improved contracts in a bid to warn off Premier League suitors.

"I think it is inevitable that there will be a lot of speculation about them. There are going to be sticky patches when people think 'are they or aren't they staying?' said Coleman.

Coleman is keen to keep the quartet at the Ricoh Arena but insists that if any of them are to leave the club then it will not be on the cheap.

He added: "We have just got to say as a club, if anyone is interested in our best players, A: they are going to have to pay a king's ransom for them, and B: we make sure we reinvest all that money to make sure we can go out and find some more.

"But the plan is not to sell any of our players, certainly not the ones who have been mentioned."
