Schmeichel joins Coventry on loan

Danish Under 21 goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has made a loan move to Coventry City until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old stopper made the request for the temporary move in a bid to gain more first team experience after already enjoying a successful spell with Cardiff this season.

Schmeichel will now join up with the Sky Blues’ squad ahead of Saturday’s home game against Sheffield Wednesday.

Speaking to the official Coventry City website, new manager Chris Coleman said: "Kasper has shown this season that he has all the attributes to be a top class Premier League goalkeeper and I have no doubt he will be a very valuable addition to the squad.

"He has a great ability and strength, plus he has age on his side. The future is certainly bright for him."
