Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has revealed he hopes to bring trialist Marcus Tudgay into the club following the Italian pre-season tour. 

The 31-year old striker joined the Sky Blues on trial and has impressed during his time at the club, featuring against AEL Kalloni and AS Roma B.

The former Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday striker was released from Forest at the end of last season following the end of his contract.

Speaking in an exclusive Sky Blues Player interview, the City manager confirmed he wants to add the forward to the squad.

Pressley said: "We'd like to bring Marcus into the group. We're going to work hard on that and I've spoke to Steve (Waggott) about that.

"Hopefully we can come to an agreement with the player. When he arrived here, we spoke with his representatives about the perimeters we're operating in.

"If we can come to an agreement, he'd be an excellent addition to the squad but until we secure that, I'll not get excited."

City played three pre-season matches during their time in northern Italy and Pressley believes it was a positive experience for the squad, despite the weather.

He added: "It was a really good experience for the squad. We played the three games which were all good work-outs for the players.

"The standard of training was exceptionally high and the training facilities were top quality. 

"The only disappointing aspect was the weather. If the weather was as good as it has been in Coventry over the last week, it would have been better.

"However, I think our preparations are going very well and I've seen a general improvement from the squad over the past week."
