'We will be active today' - Pressley

31 January 2014

The City boss hopes to bring in one more striker ahead of today's 11pm deadline...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has confirmed the club will be active on transfer deadline day.

The Sky Blues completed a double loan swoop yesterday as Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso and Celtic winger Dylan McGeouch joined on loan until the end of the season.

City completed a loan deal for Swansea striker Rory Donnelly this morning and Pressley wants to add to his squad further.

Pressley said: "I don't particularly like transfer deadline day because it is far from ideal. Everybody is putting everything in place and when one domino falls, the business gets done.

"I've been waiting for certain deals to happen for weeks now but we've had to wait until the final couple of days. 

"We will be active today. There is a lot of work to be done. I'm really happy with the work we've already done and the Rory Donnelly deal is completed.

"We've got several on the radar. We might have to wait and see. I would like another striker in and we might consider another winger but definitely a striker."

With Callum Wilson set to be out for the next four to five weeks, Delfouneso is in line to start against Walsall tomorrow.

Pressley believes the loanee can be a 'real asset' and has the ability to open up League One defences.

He added: "It is a fantastic signing and it is one I wanted to bring straight from the start of the transfer window.

"He has played out wide a few times for Blackpool when he was on loan there but I think his best position is up front.

"We play a system which will suit his style because he usually does best playing in a front two situation. 

"It is to see the club can attract that calibre of player and I think he will be a real asset for us this season."
