Coventry City are close to naming a new Chairman and new CEO.

Interim MD Tim Fisher has been interviewing candidates and told the Coventry Observer's Steve Carpenter: "I have cut a long list of candidates down to ten and I have been conducting interviews for the role. I have a few more to speak with before I produce a shortlist. “ 

Speaking about the role of Chairman, which has been empty since Ken Dulieu quit to take over an ill fated paid role as “Director Of Football” and seen names such as Life President John Sillett and Associate Director David Shortland amongst the possible candidates, Mr Fisher said: "As for the new chairman, I have a small number of people in mind who I believe have the right profile for the role. 

"It will be a person with local knowledge. They may not necessarily live in the area but they will have an in-depth knowledge of the club and will have had long connections with it too. 

"We haven't formally removed the director of football role. At the moment we have Steve Waggot helping Andy Thorn identify key players and Steve is filtering out those who are available for the right price."
