The City manager wants to get targets into the squad for pre-season ahead of the 2014/15 League One season...

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has revealed the club has made several offers to transfer targets during the summer transfer window.

The City boss is still waiting to hear back from the offers on his transfer targets as he looks to strengthen the City squad ahead of the 2014/15 League One season.

The club started last season in a transfer embargo meaning recruitment was hampered on the lead-up to the 2013/14 season.

The City manager revealed he has already moved on some of his transfer targets as he awaits his first signing of the summer.

Pressley said: "We need a lot of players. We've put several offers to some players and several of those offers are out there at the moment. We're just waiting for a response.

"The players we've made offers to, have various options and they're mulling over their situations at the moment.

"We have to be patient as we have to make sure we get the right players in. The way we play requires a particular mentality so the players we bring in has to fit the Coventry philosophy."

During the 2013/14 season, City brought in several loan signings as injuries and suspensions took it's toll throughout the season.

The City boss has previously admitted he wants to improve the club's recruitment policy and it starts over the course of the summer.

He added: "This summer, we're going to have a really precise recruitment drive.

"I don't want to get to a situation where we're just bringing in players just fill spaces but rather a planned transfer policy. 

"We want to get our targets into the squad so we start the season with players who have bedded into the club throughout pre-season.

"We're working very hard to do that and hopefully we'll see our efforts come off during the summer."
