WOLVES misfit Freddy Eastwood will finally be unveiled as a Coventry City player in the next couple of days.
The former Southend striker will become Chris Coleman's fourth summer signing and more are to follow.
Eastwood, 24, has constantly been linked to the Ricoh Arena ever since ex-Sky Blues Iain Dowie attempted to sign the Wales international on-loan during the January transfer window.
COVENTRY City new-boy Keiren Westwood wants to set the record straight over the controversy that clouded his Republic of Ireland call-up.
The highly-rated keeper put pen-to-paper on a deal with the Sky Blues this week to become Chris Coleman's third summer signing.
However, while Westwood was welcomed with open arms at the Ricoh Arena, the same can't be said for his first involvement with Giovanni Trapattoni's Irish squad.
The talented shot-stopper was drafted in to the Republic's Portugal training camp last month following his heroics in Carlisle's League One play-off defeat to Leeds United.
Although he didn't pick up an official cap, Westwood, 23, did make a second-half appearance in the Irish's 3-1 victory over Portuguese minnows Lagos.
But while Manchester-born Westwood, who qualifies for Ireland through his grandmother, was still pinching himself at his fairytale rise to international football, back in the Emerald Isle Bohemians goalie Brian Murphy was left fuming.
