Coventry City have signed Manchester City youngster Alex Nimely on loan for the rest of the season.

The 20-year old recently returned to Eastlands after a three-month spell with Middlesbrough and now Coventry boss Andy Thorn has his services at his disposal for the remainder of the campaign.

"Alex is a very, very talented young player for his age in this country. I've liked him for a long time," said Thorn.

"He gives us a dimension we haven't got and haven't had at the club for a long time - excellent pace and he goes off the shoulder. He's played in wide positions and for me he's an out-and-out centre-forward and goalscorer.

"He's a big talent and there's a lot of clubs after him, Brian Marwood (football administration officer at Manchester City ) has done us a big favour and they've agreed to let him come to us.”
