Sky Blues snap up striker Frank Nouble on loan deal from Ipswich Town on transfer deadline day
Coventry City have completed the loan signing of striker Frank Nouble from Championship side Ipswich Town subject to Football League and FA approval.
The 22-year-old joins the Sky Blues up to and including January 4th, 2015 after completing the move on deadline day of the summer transfer window.
Nouble, who has represented England at Under 17 and Under 19 level, started his career at Chelsea where he worked his way through the youth ranks before rejecting a professional deal in favour of a long-term deal at West Ham United in 2009.
The Lewisham-born striker spent three years at Upton Park where he made ten first team appearances amongst a series of loan moves before being signed by Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer of 2012 and then Ipswich Town in January 2013.
Sky Blues boss Steven Pressley said he was delighted to be able to further bolster his attacking options with Nouble, a player he described as young and hungry to make a name for himself.
"What you get with Frank is a quick, mobile, powerful striker and that is exactly what we are looking for," Pressley said.
"I spoke to Frank about what he wants out of a move to Coventry City and his ambition certainly aligns with my expectations and I'm looking forward to seeing the positive impact I believe his addition will bring.
"I'm certainly excited to see what he is capable of and now we find ourselves in a situation where we have a number of strikers all eager to claim a starting place in front of more than 20,000 City supporters at the Ricoh Arena on Friday."
