Coventry busy in the transfer market – this time they land former Liverpool full-back

Posted by

The Sky Blues are many people’s idea of a dark horse this season, especially under former Fulham manager Chris Coleman. The Championship is likely to be as wide-open as ever, and Coventry now have a strikeforce which could boost the ‘goals for’ column next term.

The BBC report that it’s back-to-back signings for the West Midlands club this week, with Clinton Morrison arriving on Thursday, while it’s the turn of Stephen Wright to join the club on Friday. The full-back joins from Sunderland, having previously plied his trade for Liverpool.

The right-back is pleased to have finally signed for the Sky Blues.

“It seems like it’s been quite a while coming but it’s great to get things sorted and I can’t wait to get going now.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time with the club so far. There’s a great bunch of lads here and we’ve got a top manager as well.

“Training has been really good, we’re looking sharp and we can’t wait to kick the season off against Norwich on Saturday.”

Can Coventry finish in the top six, now that they’ve bagged Eastwood, Morrison and now Wright? The latter know what’s required to get out of this division and could easily be lining up for Sunderland in the Premier League if he hadn’t suffered such misfortune with injury.
