Josh McQuoid has been placed on loan to Coventry City by his parent club Bournemouth for the first half of the upcoming season.
The 24-year old English striker is the 10th player to be brought at the Sixfields Stadium this summer.
McQuoid has quite a good record in League One as well as in the Championship.
Talking to the reporters about him yesterday, the Coventry manager Steven Pressley said, “We had been trying to bring Josh here since a while. He is such a utility player. He has proved himself already in League One and has done well in Championship too.”
“With him coming, we have quite a few choices now in the frontline. Hopefully, his impact on the club is positive over the next few months.”
McQuoid is only 24 years of age presently, but, he is not short of experience. He has been playing at the senior level for 8 years now.
Pressley had lacked offensive options in the latter parts of the previous season. Apart from Callum Wilson, he had no one whom he could rely on up front.
He doesn’t want to find himself in that situation again this season and that’s why, he is looking for the loan as well as the permanent signings of the offensive players.
Pressley has already signed a couple of strikers in the form of Shaun Miller and Marcus Tudgay on a permanent basis. Both these players had been released by their respective previous clubs.
As far as McQuoid is concerned, he is a versatile player who can be used as a playmaker too.
Coventry had disappointed the fans last season with continuous mediocre performances, but, with the shuffling being done in the squad this summer; they can be expected to do well in the 2014-15 Season.
