Trialist Available If He Suits Pressley's Needs

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has said that he could possibly sign the Dutch striker that he currently has on trial.

Speaking about the 20 year old Dutchman, who came to Coventry on Sunday night, City boss Steven Pressley told the Coventry Telegraph's Andy Turner: “He has trained over the last few days and he’s done OK.

“He can play both out wide or as a striker and he’s a good player and an interesting player who I think there’s a lot of development in him.

“And he’s someone who may be available in January.”

Asked how he came to his attention, the City boss said: “I was given information on him in the summer when I watched quite a lot of footage of him and he was due to join us for a week while we were in Holland.

"But he was in such good form at the time that the club declined after originally saying he could join us, so they reneged on that and decided he could definitely be part of their squad this year.

“He played in a game while we were over there for his club and played exceptionally well and as a result he wasn’t allowed to join us, so he was a victim of his own success.

“I think he has started four games in the top league and played off the bench quite a number of times. The players wants to play more regularly and he’s someone we’ll certainly consider.

“He’s become available again and that’s why we’re looking at him. His contract finishes at end of year so there’s a possibility that we could take him permanently.”
