Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray is looking to make further signings this January transfer window, according to the Coventry Telegraph.

The club has already seen three new signings in the past week with midfielder Stephen Hunt and centre-half Paul Ramage moving to Ricoh Arena and Joe Cole signing a permanent deal.

Joe Cole made his move permanent from struggling Premier League side Aston Villa on the 7th January, freeing up a loan deal for the manager.

A loan extension deal also seems imminent to keep Adam Armstrong on loan from Newcastle United. The 18 year old is the Sky Blues top goal scorer, with 16 league goals this season.

However, new players come with the price of letting others go.

There is stipulation that Marc-Antoine Fortune or Marcus Tudgy could be on the books to leave the club due to the Manager showing interest in signing another striker to play alongside Armstrong.

Both players have become second choice strikers this season, scoring 5 goals between them. Despite 32 year-old Tudgy signing a new contract in summer, the striker has not started a league game since September.

Mowbry has said “There’s a few conversations going on and I like to think there will be possibly two or three more additions before the window shuts.”

“That might mean one or two leave but I am conscious of not creating an imbalance in the team where we’re bringing in too many players who you think are there to improve your side but actually disrupt it by making too many changes.”

Coventry City are currently 4th place in League One and are looking to continue to chase a promotion place in the second half of the season.
