Ryan Allsop told the Coventry Telegraph that he has enjoyed his time with Coventry City as he returned to his parent club.

The 22 year-old featured 27 times for the Sky Blues during his loan spell after joining the club in July.

The stopper also revealed he wanted to return to Bournemouth in order to earn a new contract as he has six months left on his current Cherries deal.

“I've really enjoyed my time with the club," Allsop said.

"I learned a lot off Oggy and I can’t speak highly enough of him and Lee Burge.

“I think it has been good for me to play games at Coventry, to help me progress.

“Obviously I am still a young goalkeeper and still learning the game but at the same time I think I need to go back to Bournemouth and try to progress there.

“They are doing really well at the moment and I think I need to get in under the manager’s nose there and try to show him what I can do. I am out of contract in the summer so I’ve got six months left to show him how I have progressed.

“I spoke to Steve Ogrizovic and numerous people to get their advice about what’s the best thing for me to do. It’s been a tough decision and I haven’t made it lightly, but I think it’s the best thing for me at this moment in time.”
