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.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
