The Coventry Telegraph reports that Kevin Foley is set to make the move to Coventry City after being released by Charlton Athletic. It was Slade who took the versatile defender to The Valley when in charge of the Addicks last year, but now wants the full back to help the Sky Blues avoid relegation into Sky Bet League Two.

Coventry sit in the Sky Bet League One relegation places, but are only one point away from Bury, who sit just outside the bottom four. They’ve drew their last two games, both against top eight opposition in the form of Peterborough United and Bolton Wanderers.

Foley, who began his career at Luton Town before moving to Wolverhampton Wanderers, was today released from his contract and boss Karl Robinson paid tribute to the former Republic of Ireland international,

“Kevin has been a model professional since I came to the club. He has given his all in training every day and is a great role model for any young player that wants a long career in the game.”
He made 20 appearances for Charlton this season, but now looks set to become Slade’s fourth signing at the Ricoh Arena of the transfer window. Right back is a particular area that needs improving after Jamie Sterry returned to Newcastle United at the end of his loan spell. Coventry are without a game this weekend due to being out of the FA Cup and their scheduled opponents remaining in the competition. They remain in the EFL Trophy and next Tuesday they face the Brighton & Hove Albion Under-23 side, possibly with Foley making his debut.
