James Bailey is once more a Derby County player after his loan spell at League One side Coventry City ended.

Bailey, who, was signed by Mark Robins on an emergency 93 day loan, made eighteen appearances for Coventry, scoring once and signed off yesterday with a swansong performance in the 3-1 victory at Stevenage FC.

Coventry City manager Mark Robins has again made clear his desire that Bailey returns to the Sky Blues, who are understood to be having talks with Nigel Clough and the Rams management at Pride Park and he told Sky Blue Player's Nick Connoll: "I'd like to sign James permanently but if not that then on loan again. But we will see what can be done and what we can do in January."

As for Bailey, he admitted that he had enjoyed his football with the Sky Blues, missing only one match since he joined and told the Coventry Telegraph: "All I want to do is play football. I am happy here; it's a great bunch of lads and we're moving up the league with the fans behind us now and I'm enjoying my football."
