The 18-year-old Petrasso has joined on an initial 28-day deal after impressing whilst on loan at Oldham earlier this season.

Boss Steven Pressley told the club's website: "Michael is one player we've been watching for a while so we are delighted to get him in the building.

"He played for Oldham against us and we were impressed by his work-rate and speed during that performance.

"He is young and hungry so we think he will be a valuable addition for us."

Akpom, also 18, had a spell at Brentford earlier this term and links up with the Sky Blues on a youth loan deal until the end of the season.

Pressley added: "We've been looking to add options to our forward line and Chuba is an exciting young player who we're delighted to bring in.

"He is a young player who is hungry to prove himself, and hunger is certainly a key attribute at this football club.

"We've got a lot of games left this season and I hope Chuba will be able to help us get the results we need."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
