Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has admitted to the Coventry Telegraph he was impressed with loanee striker Nick Proschwitz.

The Sky Blues boss is currently working through his summer transfer plans, looking and researching through a number of targets ahead of the 2015/16 League One season.

Proschwitz joined the club on loan from Brentford and scored one goal for the Sky Blues after initially struggling to claim a starting spot in Mowbray's XI.

Mowbray told the Telegraph: “I have been pleased with Proschwitz who I think is a goalscorer and with the right ammunition would score 20 goals a season. 

"Not that we’ve seen that on the pitch but I have seen it every day in training and he would score goals, I am pretty sure.

"What I saw on the training ground doesn’t lie. He was very clinical and what did he have to get him up to speed? 

"Maybe six games or something because he didn’t feature in the first games I was here because he was usually the spare player out because of the amount of loans we had.

"So I think he’s worth persevering with and exploring, because he’s out of contract."
