Two Former City Players Released

Two former Coventry City players have been released by their clubs this week.

Former City defender Elliott Ward has been told by manager Tony Mowbray that he is not part of his plans for the club which will be playing Championship football next season.

The well travelled Ward made 116 appearances for City between 2006 and 2010.

Former Coventry City loanee Willo Flood, who played in City;s first ever game at the Ricoh Arena against Queens Park Rangers, has been released by Dundee United.

Flood was in his second spell with the Scottish Championship club and was club captain. However, Flood and twelve other players who are out of contract in June, have been told that their contracts will not be renewed.

The winger's last game was the play-off defeat to Livingston in which he was sent off.


Former Coventry City defender Sam Allardyce is being reported as not being confident about his future as manager of Everton.

The 63 year old was appointed in November but his style has proved unpopular amongst some of the Toffees support and Allardyce is is set to hold talks with the club's owner Farhad Moshiri and could be out of a job in the next couple of days.

Former Watford boss Marco Silva is being seen as his replacement.
