City close in on targets

City close in on targets

Coventry City assistant manager Tim Flowers is hopeful that the Sky Blues will be able to wrap up at least one new signing this week after being assured that new investment in the club was on its way.

Robbie Simpson is set to join from Cambridge United while City are also well down the line with two signings fromother Championship clubs.

'Iain and myself met with Paul Fletcher, Mal Brannigan and one or two others at the Ricoh where we had a long chat,' Flowers told the Coventry Telegraph.

'We need to get some bodies in and we are not 100 per cent sure what our budget is or is going to be but the chaps were really confident that the investors will be in place by the end of the month and then hopefully cash made available.

'But we are also keen to bring a few players in before then if we can and have got two or three players who are close to being done.'

Dowie must at present be looking enviously at the funds Martin Allen is getting at Leicester. The investment coming in always seems to be just round the corner. Having said that I'm happy with the kind of players we are looking at. Wolves have shown that young, hungry players can make a good, committed team.

I think they are going along the right lines at present. Whatever the investment is I don't think then splashing out is necessarily the right answer. We want a team for the next ten years not just one.
