Sky Sports understands Coventry are poised to sign Preston midfielder Adam Barton.

Barton is in talks with Coventry after they agreed a fee with Preston for his services.

Preston are willing to offload Barton as he does not figure in Graham Westley's plans and has been training away from the first-team squad in pre-season.

A number of clubs have expressed an interest in Barton, but Coventry have stolen a march on their rivals by making a move for the highly-rated midfielder.

Barton is expected to sign a three-year deal at Coventry to become Andy Thorn's latest signing of the summer.
