Deadline day: Leon leaves City a striker light

Deadline day: Leon leaves City a striker light

Leon McKenzie left Coventry City with a parting shot on transfer deadline day, feeling the Sky Blues should have offered him a longer deal than the one on the table until Christmas.

'I feel the club should have done better for me,' he told the Coventry Telegraph after battling back from injury.

McKenzie was clearly a crowd favourite but the Sky Blues, having paid the player throughout the summer whilst he completed his rehab, were also entitled to be cautious with their contract offer, which would have taken McKenzie up to the next transfer window anyway.

As it is he has moved to Charlton on a deal which runs only until the end of the season.

One player who won't be replacing McKenzie at the Ricoh Arena just yet is David Healy.

A permanent deal could not be agreed for the Northern Ireland star with Sunderland while Healy himself was not keen on a loan switch, a situation that may change when the window re-opens for temporary signings if he has not managed to make an impact on the Black Cats first team by then.
