The Sky Blues were granted permission to hold talks with Pressley on Wednesday having identified the Scot as their number one choice to replace Mark Robins following his switch to Huddersfield three weeks ago.

And they have spent the past 24 hours attempting to iron out personal terms as well as a compensation package with his current Scottish First Division employers.

Coventry development director Steve Waggott said: "We've held very positive talks with Steven Pressley and Falkirk today (Thursday) and they are progressing well.

"We will continue working on the deal in order to reach a conclusion that is good for all parties."

City are looking for their third permanent manager of the season and fifth in total following Robins, Andy Thorn - sacked in late August - and caretaker bosses Richard Shaw and Lee Carsley, who has won three and lost two of his five matches at the helm in recent weeks.

Former Scotland defender Pressley, 39, enjoyed a brief playing spell with the Sky Blues during the 1994/95 Premier League season.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
