Last updated : 28 January 2009 By Covsupport News Service
Coventry City manager Chris Coleman has confirmed that Indian striker Sunil Chhetri is training with the Sky Blues.

"He trained with us yesterday and today and is here for a couple of weeks just for us to have a look at him," said Coleman to the CT about the East Bengal player.

"They have a rest in their season over there and through some of sources he was brought to our attention because he was recognised as one of the better players in India where he was the highest goalscorer. "He has come in and done quite well." 

There are rumours about City being interested in Sunderland's Jordan Henderson. The 18 year old midfielder has played once for the Makems in a League Cup tie and has played 44 minutes of Sunderland's 5-0 defeat at Chelsea in a Premier League game.
