The former Scotland international goalkeeper arrived in the Midlands on a short-term deal, which expires at the end of the week, but his stay with The Sky Blues has been plunged into doubt following Gordon Strachan`s departure.
Goram is now set to meet chairman Bryan Richardson and manager Roland Nilsson to clarify his future in the hope that he can win a new deal.
"I'll be meeting club chairman Bryan Richardson and caretaker boss Roland Nilsson to see what they have in mind for me," he said.
"My deal ends next Sunday but I'll be trying to persuade them I'm worth a longer run than that.
"I've really enjoyed myself at Coventry, playing reserves midweek and being substitute to Hedman in first-team games.
"He seems anxious to leave so the club might want to hold on to me."
Meanwhile, winger Laurent Delorge has thanked Nilsson for resurrecting his Coventry career.
The Belgian was signed three years ago by Strachan, but his time at Highfield Road was blighted by injuries.
He later found himself frozen out by Strachan, but has been given a chance to resurrect his career by Nilsson.
"Roland Nilsson has got confidence in me and that's what I needed - someone who was right behind me," the former Ghent man said.
"It was so frustrating not being able to get in the side when Gordon Strachan was there because I wanted to prove myself at Coventry.
"It's been a difficult couple of years - first with my injuries that kept me out for 15 months and then when I wasn't picked. I was really unlucky to break my leg in my first reserve game, but when I got fit again I didn't get many chances.
"I wanted to go out on loan last season to get my form back, but Gordon wouldn't let me go because the team were struggling.
"But then Gordon wouldn't play me last season because we were struggling and he didn't want to risk youngsters.
"This is a fresh start for everybody - those who were in the side and those who weren't. It's a good opportunity for me."
