Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has hailed Alex Nimely as a great signing.

Nimely will arrive in Coventry on Monday and stay on loan from Manchester City, who are understood to be paying all his wages, for the rest of the season.

Speaking about the 20 year forward who is expected to replace the out-going Lukas Jutkiewicz, Thorn said to the Press Association: : "This a great signing for us. He is a hot young prospect and we have been looking at him for some time.

"He will be a good option for us up front and we look forward to having him with us for the next few months.

"Manchester City think extremely highly of Alex and we are delighted that they see the benefit he will get from being here until the end of the season."
