The terms of Coventry City’s transfer embargo have been eased significantly by the Football League meaning the Sky Blues no longer need to operate on a one-in, one-out policy as they have been doing since exiting administration earlier in the season.

A statement on the official website states: ‘the club must still demonstrate it has the finances to meet any new player`s liabilities as a condition set by The Football League’ which you would hope would apply to any club making signings given the trouble many have found themselves in over the past few years.

Development director Steve Waggott has also thanked the club’s owner for injecting the funds required to achieve the new position.
First through the entrance door is likely to be Yeovil Town central defender Dan Seaborne after his impressive loan spell with City while confusion reigns over the future of striker Leon Clarke after his transfer request on Monday.

Former clubs Wolves and Sheffield Wednesday are both being linked with the player but the Molineux men have denied making a bid and did sign another forward, Nouha Dicko, at the start of the week.

After last week’s link with Celtic midfielder Dylan McGeouch, Dagenham & Redbridge’s Rhys Murphy, a striker who came through the ranks at Arsenal, is another name in the frame for a potential transfer to Sixfields.

Update Seaborne has completed an 18-month deal with boss Steven Pressley telling the official club website: “He made quite a impression on us during his short loan spell and he definitely brings strength and physicality to our back line.”
