Sources: Coventry City agree to sign Cashman and loan him to Rochdale

Coventry City have agreed to sign Danny Cashman on a free transfer and then loan him straight out to Rochdale, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.

The forward is available after being released by Brighton & Hove Albion at the end of last season.

A Coventry source has told Football Insider that Cashman has agreed the terms of a three-year contract.

He will sign and then head to Rochdale on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old is yet to make his senior debut but has been prolific in youth football.

Cashman scored 12 times and provided 11 assists in 43 games for Brighton Under-23s, including 34 starts.

That includes one goal in five starts in the EFL Trophy.

Last season, he scored six times in 18 starts in Premier League 2 for the Seagulls.

Despite his impressive record, he has not been deemed ready for the Coventry first-team.

Mark Robins has already bolstered his attacking ranks with the signing of Martyn Waghorn.

The 31-year-old has scored 75 times in 322 Championship games in his career so far.

Therefore, Cashman is set to move to Rochdale for the upcoming campaign.

The Dale did not struggle for goals last season but still suffered relegation to League Two.

It was their defence that let them down and Robbie Stockdale has already signed two central defenders as a result.

They begin their campaign with a trip to Harrogate Town on Saturday.

In other news, Coventry City have told a 23-year-old to find a new club.
