Chuba Akpom: Loaned to the Sky Blues

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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
