Slade Wants To Bring In Up To Four More

Last updated : 20 January 2017 By CNS Sport

Coventry City manager Russell Slade has said that he would like four more players to come in if possible.

“I’d like to bring two more in in midfield, one wide player and one central and least one striker if not two,” Slade told the Coventry Observer's Steve Carpenter.

“We’re very close to bringing one striker in, there is an agreement in place. We were hoping to get him in this week but we’re having to wait a bit longer but in principle the deal has been agreed.

Speaking about the two, he has on trial, Slade said: “Both trialists are doing fine. I knew Theo during my time at Cardiff and he was a very promising player.

“He picked up an injury which was unlucky for him be he’s still a young player who I think has a bright future in the game.

“Samba is probably not up to speed fitness wise I’d say but the work he’s done has been beneficial to him. He has got huge pedigree and it wasn’t that long ago when he was a multi-million pound player, but he’s probably just lost his way a little bit.

“Both players will be analysed on Monday when we’ll take a look at them and see how they do against Crystal Palace.

“Of course both players’ fitness is a concern because given our situation we can’t be waiting on them too long to get up to speed, which is another reason why they’re playing on Monday."
