The midfielder completed his maximum three-month stay from Derby with the 3-1 victory at Stevenage on Boxing Day.

But boss Robins is keen to see Bailey, 24, pull on a Sky Blue shirt once again in the new year, ideally after penning a transfer across the midlands.

"I'd like to sign James permanently but if not that then on loan again," Robins told Coventry's official website.

"But we will see what can be done and what we can do in January."

Prolific striker David McGoldrick also sees his loan stint come to an end on New Year's Day, with City still working on a possible deal with parent club Nottingham Forest although an agreement is looking increasingly unlikely.

On Monday Coventry took striker Leon Clarke on trial with a view to a permanent move next month.

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
