Coventry City consider transfer deadline swoop
CHRIS COLEMAN has been given the all-clear to strengthen his Coventry City squad before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
City were forced to draft in teenager midfielder Aron Gunnarsson at rightback at Barnsley on Saturday when summer recruit Stephen Wright suffered an Achilles problem.
The last-minute reshuffle exposed a gap in the Sky Blues resources, Coleman admitting that while he has several options on the left he is short of right-flank options.
But chairman Ray Ranson has confirmed that cash is available if Coleman decides he needs reinforcements in that area.
"We speak on a daily basis discussing scenarios to improve the squad," he said.
"We are constantly reviewing the situation and there's a few names he's mentioned so we will have to see."
Ranson and Coleman are both keen to free up cash by shipping out players who have little chance of forcing their way into the current first team.
"We'd like to reduce the size of the squad," confirmed Ranson.
"The manager has said on numerous occasions that he wants to trim it down to the low 20s but with a lot more quality, so from that point of view we'd like to move a few on."
