Pressley Reveals Loan Plans

Coventry City manager Steven Pressley has claimed that he is ready to use the loan market in order to strengthen the team for the upcoming season. Coventry only managed to avoid relegation last season after they finished 18th in the table. Pressley adopted the technique of bringing several loan players first season as well. However, this move paid only have rich dividends since the likes of Nathan Delfouneso of Aston Villa did not manage to do sufficiently well enough to warrant a place in the team. However, there was also success in the form of Anton Robinson and Michael Petrasso as well.

Coventry have a lot of financial difficulties and this is unlikely to allow Pressley to sign permanent players. He is, however, empowered with the ability to sign players on a permanent basis, which was certainly not the case last summer. Coventry were in a transfer embargo back then and this did not allow him to utilise the transfer window. Coventry will be hoping to at least make it into the play-offs of League One so that it would give them confidence of returning back to the championship. Several delegations in the last decade have hampered the club quite badly and they are in a dire financial straits right now.

“We have been working tirelessly to identify the right kind of player that we want to bring into the building and we are looking to start the recruitment process as quickly as possible but we have to make sure we get the right ones. If the right player presents himself to us tomorrow then we will sign him tomorrow but at this moment in time that has not been the case. I obviously have to think strategically in terms of managing my playing budget for next season but part of that process may be that certain players,” Pressley said.
