The 30-year-old midfielder, who has been without a club since departing Portsmouth last month, has been training with the club for the past 10 days.

City head coach Sean O'Driscoll is now poised to offer the former Reading man terms.

"He's got Championship experience and is technically very good," O'Driscoll told the club's official website. "His personality would add something positive to the group.

"He's got offers from two other clubs so we have to make our move."

Howard could join up with the squad for Saturday's npower Championship match at Cardiff if a deal is sealed.

Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
