The Sky Blues boss expects the Everton defender to extend his loan stint until the end of the season...
Coventry City manager Steven Pressley confirmed that the club are close to extending Matty Pennington's loan deal.
Pennington's original loan spell at the club will expire today, but the manager believes a deal will be in place before tomorrow night's clash with Scunthorpe.
"We're close to extending Matty's loan from Everton," Pressley said.
"I think with a youth loan you can extend it as many times as you like, there aren't as many restrictions so we expect to extend the deal until the end of the season.
"It still counts as one of our five loan players but we expect Matty to be involved tomorrow night."
