Breen Set To Leave City

Republic of Ireland international Gary Breen is set to leave Coventry City.

The 25-year-old centre half has just won his place back in Gordon Strachan’s side but is certain the club are about to offload him at the end of the season.

Now Breen, who was disciplined earlier this season when he missed the team bus for a Worthington Cup game at Southend, is trying to earn himself a move in the final six games of the season.

He said:

"At the moment I just need to be playing to show other teams that I am fit and available in the summer. I don’t envisage having a future at Coventry City.

"I haven’t asked for a transfer because I am not really the type to but I have spoken to the manager and it is a mutual decision.

"First and foremost I want Coventry to stay in the Premiership but at the same time I realise my future is not here. I think the fact I had not played a lot of games leading up to the transfer deadline had a bearing on the fact no-one was in for me.

"It is disappointing the way it has worked out but I have to show that I am fit now and that I can still play at this level. I feel much better and stronger and that shows in my game, so it is just a case of getting myself back in the shop window."

Breen, who cost 2.5 million from Birmingham two years ago, has only started 15 games this season for the Highfield Road club who have recently paid out 2.5 million for Bosnian central defender Mo Konjic.

Breen has been linked with moves to Celtic and Blackburn this season.

Sky Blues skipper Gary McAllister will miss a return to his former club Leicester City later this month.

McAllister will serve a one-match ban, ruling him out of the Filbert Street fixture on 24 April, after picking up a booking during yesterday’s 1-0 home win over Southampton.

McAllister was one of four City players cautioned by referee Uriah Rennie during a 10 minute spell late in the game.
