Coventry City are confident about signing Oliver Dovin from Hammarby, according to reports from Sweden.

Aftonbladet today writes that the Championship side are currently in ‘final negotiations’ to get the goalkeeper.

It’s said Coventry City placed a bid for Dovin in the past few days, and now hope that they can get the deal wrapped up in the coming weeks.

Hammarby are currently demanding €2.3m for the transfer, and there’s still a little distance between the offer and the request.

Still, the outlet claims that the clubs may finalise the deal soon, even though club director Mikael Hjemberg didn’t confirm the negotiations.

“We know about the interest in Oliver. He is a thorough professional. He is focused on tomorrow’s training and has his sights set on a fourth straight clean sheet on Monday against Gothenburg.”

Dovin has 12 appearances for Hammarby this season, with 15 goals conceded and three clean sheets. His contract with the Swedish side runs until 2026.

Coventry City have just lost Simon Moore, who’s on his way to Sunderland, and apparently want a replacement sorted early in the summer.

So far, the Championship side confirmed the arrivals of Jack Rudoni from Huddersfield, Luis Binks from Bologna and Raphael Rodrigues from Macarthur ahead of the 2024/25 season.
