PRESS WATCH: "Dominic Samuel has been terrific, we'll see if we can pick it up in the summer-time." Coventry City's Tony Mowbray

3 April 2015

Mowbray hailed the impact of the striker and admits he has chatted to Steve Clarke about Samuel's situation for next season...

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray told the Coventry Telegraph that he has already looked into the possibility of resigning Dominic Samuel next season.

The striker has made an impressive impact to the Sky Blues squad since his arrival in January, making 14 appearances and netting six times.

The 20-year old was however, ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering an ankle injury in the 1-0 defeat to Leyton Orient on Saturday.

Mowbray has been impressed with the front-man since he took over as manager and has already admitted that he has made enquiries on the striker's availability for next season.

"I have to say Dominic has been terrific for the club even before I came in," Mowbray told the Coventry Telegraph.

"He’s scored goals, linked the play and worked extremely hard. He’s a decent character around the dressing room so it’s a blow for us and the lad, of course.

"I’ve spoken to Steve Clarke at Reading and we’ll see if we can pick it up again in the summer time.

"Hopefully he’ll be ready for the pre-season. It’s probably going to be touch and go but let’s wait and see.

"It’s important to develop relationships with the clubs where the boys are from really. I’ve had a good conversation with Steve and Dom might not be the only one because Reading have got some good young players."
