The right back for Charlton Athletic, Kevin Foley, is set to sign a new agreement with Coventry City.
Russell Slade, Coventry City’s boss is keen on signing the 32 year old who was one of his former players.
Foley was recently released by the Addicks and would join the Sky Blues on a free transfer. This is expected to last till the end of the season, and if possible, look towards an extension of his contract for another season.
Foley began his career at Luton. For seven years, he was with the Wolves, helping them win promotion in 2009 to the Premier League title. If the deal goes through, he would become Slade’s fourth signing since the transfer window opened this January.
Last year, Slade had brought Foley down to the Charlton side on a short term deal that ended this week. He has also had some spells with FC Copenhagen, the Danish club side, and Ipswich Town, Championship club side before his move to The Valley.
Foley would be arriving Coventry at a period when they are desperately in need of cover at the right back position following Jamie Sterry, Newcastle United’s loan man departure back to his parent club.
Also, Jordan Willis, who is capable of featuring at full-back, has been linked with a move to Bristol City. Thus, Foley would be a very important signing for Coventry.
Speaking about Foley, Karl Robinson, Charlton manager was quoted as saying,
“Kevin has been a model professional since I came to the club. He has given his all in training every day and is a great role model for any young player that wants a long career in the game.”
Nathan Clarke and Kevin Foley are two of Slade’s former player that have joined him from City this year.
