Chris Coleman has confirmed Coventry City's move for Wolves striker Sam Vokes is 'dead in the water'.

The Sky Blues had been keen on bringing in the 19-year-old marksman on loan as cover for Clinton Morrison and Leon Best.

However, the move has stalled over the reported length of the deal, with The Sky Blues keen on three months and Wolves looking to loan him out until next summer.

Coleman has now admitted that the teenager, who is expected to sign for a Championship rival, will not be joining his play-off chasing squad.

"It looks like the Sam Vokes deal is dead in the water," Coleman told the Coventry Telegraph.
