Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has admitted he has drawn up a loan target hit list of players he would like to take on loan now that the 'emergency' loan window is open.

The club have already rejected a bid by Middlesbrough to take 22 year old striker Lukas Jutkiewicz on loan. They had a  £1m bid for the striker turned down during the summer transfer window and now have made a cheeky bid to take him on loan.

Coventry City are not going to allow any of their players to leave on loan, but are looking to bring in a couple of quality loan signings from Premier League clubs.

In his open letter to the fans last week SISU representative on the club board said,  “We will hopefully be successful in attracting some quality loan players later this month to help Andy Thorn.”

Club chairman chairman Ken Dulieu in an agreement with Igwe, said while the transfer window was still open that the club would be, "taking advantage of loans from Premier League clubs later in September to significantly bolster the manager’s options.”

It is thought that Thorn is looking for another striker and a midfielder and he knows who he wants.

He said, “I’ve already got a list. I’ll try to get one or two in because the more bodies the better. It would be nice to get a few loans in and we’ll be talking about it now the window has re-opened."

“We’ll be monitoring the Premier League clubs and their 25 men squads to see what’s what, but at the moment not a lot have said who will and won’t be available.”
