"We won't be able to spend transfer fees but we'll wheel and deal. I've made decisions on loan players." - Coventry City's Steven Pressley

29 December 2014

The City boss has stated the club will have to be 'creative' in the transfer market in January to bring in the 'right players'...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has admitted he has made his mind up about the loan players who are due to return to their parent clubs in January.

City have seven players; Seb Hines, Aaron Martin, Matthew Pennington, Ryan Allsop, Josh McQuoid, Gary Madine and Frank Nouble set to return to their parent clubs next month.

The Sky Blues also admitted there are players available for transfer in January which will open up the opportunity to 'wheel and deal'.

Speaking after the 0-0 draw against Chesterfield, Pressley said: "We won't be able to spend money on transfer fees but we'll wheel and deal. 

"We'll have to be very creative in the market to bring in what we need.

"I've made my decisions in my own mind about the loan players. The players we want to keep, we've got to work hard to keep them here. 

"We've got some of the loan players going back to their parent clubs and there will be certain players made available for transfer."

The majority of the loan players will return to their parent clubs after the trip to Walsall next weekend and Pressley wants to get the right players in.

He added: "If we can move some of those players, then we can look to bring the right players into the club.

"It isn't a case of just getting any player in though. We've got to make sure the right players come into the club and we'll be working hard to make that happen.

"January is always a difficult market to operate in as clubs don't usually want to let go players they need."
