'We'll move quickly to get targets'

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has confirmed the club will look to move quickly in the January transfer window.

The Sky Blues brought in three loan players in November, Chris Dagnall, Chris Maguire and Dan Seaborne, to help the squad through the Christmas period.

Maguire has already returned to Sheffield Wednesday whilst Dagnall is set to play the last game of his loan against Rotherham tomorrow and Seaborne has picked up a three-match suspension with the club still deciding whether to appeal or not.

With John Fleck and Jordan Clarke injury doubts for the New Year's Day clash, Pressley wants to get his targets in sooner rather than later.

The City boss said: "We are working towards a few things at the moment. We have identified several targets and over the course of the next few days, me and Steve (Waggott) will work hard to bring in the appropriate players.

"We have a situation now where, after tomorrow's game, Chris Dagnall can no longer play for the club with his loan ending soon and the fact we are playing his parent club in the FA Cup.

"We've already lost (Chris) Maguire and now we have the situation with Dan (Seaborne) with the suspension.

"In that respect, we need new players in the building as it is a paper thin squad where we have been reliant on the same players. We will have to move quite quickly.

"There are players who have been on our list for sometime. There is no guarantee we will get them but we will certainly try our best to do that."

Dan Seaborne is set to return to Yeovil Town on January 5th when his loan spell ends but Pressley has confirmed the club are monitoring his situation.

He added: "He has great leadership and his mentality has fit in here really well. As a left-footer, he is ideal for us. 

"He is certainly one we will consider to try and bring in here. I think there is a good chance that they (Yeovil Town) will do business with him.

"I don't think at this moment in time that he is part of their plans so we will have to monitor the situation."
