Coventry due windfall thanks to Chelsea striker Sturridge

Coventry City are due a tidy windfall as Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge prepares to make his England debut tomorrow.

The Daily Express says Sturridge will make his England debut against Sweden tomorrow, leaving Chelsea a £1million bill.

Fabio Capello’s confirmation the striker will play means Chelsea owe Manchester City an extra £1m following his controversial 2009 move.

They were ordered by a tribunal to pay £3.5m for Sturridge, now 22, and a further £3m based on future appearances.

City will not bank all of the cash, as Coventry also had a 10 per cent sell-on clause.
