COVENTRY City striker Freddy Eastwood admits he fancied a move to Cardiff City in the summer.
The former Southend striker's protracted move to the Sky Blues often looked set to derail for good during a prolonged transfer switch.
And, with the Bluebirds circling, Eastwood admitted that he fancied a move to his maternal grandfather's
country of birth.
The Essex-born star told the Sunday Mercury that the FA Cup finalist's interest got no further than newspaper talk and he's grateful that his long-awaited move to the Ricoh Arena worked out.
Now he's relishing this week's showdown at the notoriously-hostile Ninian Park because he admits it's one stadium where he doesn't attract boos from the home fans.
CHRIS COLEMAN believes his Coventry City backline is one of the best in the business - despite being one of the youngest in the Championship.
The Sky Blues defence took a battering against QPR on Saturday - but held firm for a superb 1-0 victory against the big-spending Londoners.
Coleman was delighted with the result, which took his side to eighth place in the Championship, and hailed the contribution of his back four and goalkeeper Keiren Westwood.
He told the club's official site: ""If we're going to do well in this league we are going to have games like that where you've got to grind it out.
"Most people could see what the three points meant to the players after the game."
