Rudoni, 22, has been with the Terriers for two seasons, joining from AFC Wimbledon. He played every Championship fixture in the 2022/23 season before scoring five times in 34 matches in the club’s relegation campaign in 2023/24. The midfielder had been viewed by Coventry boss Mark Robins has an ‘ideal replacement’ for Callum O’Hare who has been picking up plenty of Championship and Premier League interest ahead of the summer transfer window.

Speaking in his first press conference, the new head coach Michael Duff said that the club were not under financial pressure to sell their best players following relegation. “We don’t have to sell, there’s no fire sale here”, Duff confirmed. “If people want to buy good players, they’re going to have to meet the asking price. That’s the support that we’ve had from the owner.”
