The onset of November means it is only two months until the opening of the transfer window and the chance for those players who will be free agents next summer to discuss terms with potential new clubs.

Leon Best for instance will shortly be in a strong bargaining position, if he continues his good form from the opening months of the season.

Contract talks with the Sky Blues have ‘stalled’ to use the football term.

Both sides are currently making their positions’ known via the media, with City offering X and Best’s advisers wanting Y (and lots of it no doubt).

Freddy Eastwood is keen on a move back to Southend United albeit not for some time yet.

With the Shrimpers currently undergoing a financial crisis the former Roots Hall star has indicated his desire to end his career at the club where he made his name as a goalscorer.

Inevitably linked with a switch to the Ricoh Arena this week has been Sheffield Wednesday central defender Richard Wood following his transfer listing by the Owls, boss Brian Laws angrily claiming that Wood was looking to become the club’s highest-paid player.

There is no doubt Chris Coleman would be keen to land another central defender and both Coventry and Ipswich have been mentioned as possible interested parties.
