Last updated : 14 January 2012 By Covsupport News Service

Coventry City manager Andy Thorn has admitted that he has had to speak to Tony Mowbray to ensure that Lukas Jutkiewicz does not play against the Sky Blues next week.

Thorn told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire that he had phoned the Middlesbrough boss and they have a gentleman's agreement that Jutkiewicz, who is expected to sign a four and a half year deal at The Riverside, does not play against the Sky Blues at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.

It is understood that Steve Waggott who has been brought in to handle the incoming and outgoing players and their deals, had not stipulated any clause in the contract between the two clubs.
