Swanson Close To Coventry Signing

The Scotland international, Danny Swanson, has been reported to be close to signing for Coventry City. According to the reports, the Peterborough player will go through the medical test later today and if it goes on smoothly, he would put pen on paper.

Swanson has been a part of Peterborough since the last couple of seasons and has played about 80 games for them.

The Posh were believed to be willing to extend his contract because of his decent performance form in the previous season, but, the winger turned it down.

Swanson who is 27 years of age at the moment had begun his senior career in the second tier of Scottish football. Berwick Rangers were the first club which he had represented. He played for three years for them before joining Dundee United, a Scottish Premiership club.

Thereafter, he made his way to England as he was bought by Peterborough in 2012.

Swanson would be the first player to be signed by Steven Pressley, the newly appointed manager of Coventry.

His signing should not let Coventry miss Mark Marshall, the Caribbean player who has taken the transfer to Port Vale this summer.

Apart from Marshall, a couple of other players have parted ways with Coventry as well of late. Those players are Blair Adams (a left back from England) and Franck Moussa (a playmaker from Belgium).

Moussa has signed for Charlton Athletic, while, Adams has gone to Notts County.

Coventry’s performance in the last season was below par. They eventually finished 15th with 55 points, but, at one point of time, they looked to be in danger of suffering relegation.

But, this summer, with the arrival of Pressley as the new man in charge, there are hopes among the fans for a better performance.
