Sky Blues close to striker deal

13 February 2010 01:56
Coleman has been anxious to improve his attacking options following Leon Best's exit to Newcastle, and having brought in Freddie Sears on loan from West Ham on Thursday he is now being linked with Ipswich's Jon Stead.

"We've been working hard to get a striker in," Coleman told the Coventry Evening Telegraph.

"Everything is agreed with the club and it is just getting him to sign, so I don't want to tempt fate, but we are very optimistic."

He added: "Our aim is to keep improving the squad.

"Things cannot always happen as quickly as we would like them to happen, but we believe we have shown over the past few weeks that we are committed to our plan of improving the squad whenever the opportunity comes along."
