Coventry made a double swoop on deadline day as they added Franck Nouble and Seb Hines from Ipswich and Middlesbrough respectively.

Nouble, 22, and 26-year-old Hines both arrive at the Ricoh Arena from Championship clubs on deals running until January 4.

Boss Stephen Pressley said: "What you get with Frank is a quick, mobile, powerful striker and that is exactly what we are looking for.

"I spoke to Frank about what he wants out of a move to Coventry City and his ambition certainly aligns with my expectations and I'm looking forward to seeing the positive impact I believe his addition will bring.

"I'm certainly excited to see what he is capable of and now we find ourselves in a situation where we have a number of strikers all eager to claim a starting place in front of more than 20,000 City supporters at the Ricoh Arena on Friday."

On Hines he added: "We've been looking to bring in another defender and I'm delighted to see a player of Seb's quality join the club.

"With the 3-5-2 system that we have been using I said all along that we may look at bringing in an extra defender if that was the route we took and in Seb we have someone who brings great experience and adds quality to the squad."

Meanwhile Carl Baker has left the club having had his contract terminated by mutual consent.

The 31-year old has made 182 appearances for the Sky Blues, scoring 28 goals during his four-year spell at the club.

Pressley said: "This was a very difficult decision for me to make because Carl has been brilliant for us since I joined.

"During the summer, we've assessed the options within the squad and we believe that it is a good time for Carl to look for a new challenge in his career and we sincerely wish him all the best with that."
