Winger wants Coventry move

Ritchie Partridge is hoping to clinch a move to Coventry City following his release by Liverpool.
The winger was axed by Rafa Benitez at the end of the season after failing to convince the Reds boss he is worth a first-team spot at Anfield.
Partridge made just two appearances last term under Benitez - both in the Carling Cup - and he is now looking for a new club.
A trio of Championship clubs are on his trail but the 24-year-old admits his preference is for Coventry ahead of Leeds United and Norwich City.
The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international spent the bulk of the 2002/03 season on loan with The Sky Blues.
Coventry boss Micky Adams has been in touch regarding signing Partridge and the wide man is anxious for a deal to be struck as the club prepare to move into their new Ricoh Arena stadium.
"Coventry, Norwich and Leeds are interested in me and if I had the choice it would be Coventry," said Partridge.
"I really enjoyed it there when I had a season-long loan."
