Michael Doyle is likely to leave Coventry City this summer, chairman Ray Ranson has conceded.
The midfielder spent last season on loan at Leeds United, helping the club achieve promotion to the Championship during his 42 league appearances.
Doyle is set to enter the final year of his contract and it is suggested that Leeds could move to acquire his services on a permanent basis for the 2010/11 term.
New Sky Blues boss Aidy Boothroyd is likely to have the final say on Doyle's future, but Ranson admits the 28-year-old could head for the exit door.
"It looks like we're probably losing Michael Doyle, he's got 12 months left but there's a few clubs interested in him because he did very well at Leeds last year," said Ranson.
Ranson also conceded the club are in the market to bolster the squad, having recently released Clinton Morrison, Stephen Wright, Marcus Hall, Dimi Konstantopoulos and Elliott Ward.
"We know we need to strengthen, we know what areas and there's money available to do it," added Ranson.
"We're down to the bare bones, we have to strengthen the squad. I think we've got 15, 16 recognised professionals so we need to bring five or six in to strengthen and Aidy knows what he wants to do."
