Coventry City boss Micky Adams has confirmed that the club lack the necessary resources to land Stephen Bywater on a permanent basis.

The West Ham goalkeeper has proved an astute loan signing since joining the Sky Blues at the start of the season but talk of a permanent move appears premature.

Bywater, 24-years-old, has been pushed down the pecking order at Upton Park following Alan Pardew's summer acquisitions of Roy Carroll and Shaka Hislop.

However, whilst Bywater may have to leave East London if he is to secure regular first team football, Coventry seems an unlikely final destination.

''Stephen's done well for us but I'd imagine a loan is as far as it's going to go,'' conceded Adams.

''That's simply because of the finances here at the football club. But we've also got Clayton Ince on the books.

''He's still learning but I'm confident he'll do a very good job.''
