Coventry snap up Man City keeper Schmeichel

Chris Coleman has made Manchester City keeper Kasper Schmeichel his first signing as Coventry boss on a loan deal until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old, son of Manchester United legend Peter, is the first player to be brought in since Chris Coleman took charge at the Ricoh Arena last month.

"Kasper has shown this season that he has all the attributes to be a top class Premier League goalkeeper and I have no doubt he will be a very valuable addition to the squad," said Coleman.

"He has great ability and strength, plus he has age on his side. The future is certainly bright for him."

Schmeichel, who had a loan spell at Championship rivals Cardiff earlier this season, will go straight into the squad to face Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
