[18 MAY 99] COVENTRY CITY FC NEWS
City Transfer List International Midfielder

Coventry City have transfer listed Jamaican international midfielder Paul Hall less than 12 months after signing him from Portsmouth.

The 26-year-old wide-man has started only two games and scored one goal for the Sky Blues this campaign after making a 300,000 switch to the club last summer.

Hall was signed as cover for the two wide midfield positions but opportunities in these areas have been limited since the signing of Stephen Froggatt from Wolves in October, coupled with the emergence of George Boateng.

The Jamaican’s position was further weakened when City invested 1.25 million in Belgian flyer Laurent Delorge, and it now appears that he does not figure in Gordon Strachan’s future plans.

And it seems another of the City manager’s signings from last summer could be heading for the Highfield Road exit after it was announced that Ian Brightwell was available on a free transfer.

The former Manchester City full-back joined the club in the last close season but has been restricted to just one start after missing much of the campaign with an Achilles tendon injury.

He will be joined on the list of players available for free by Craig Faulconbridge who has successful loan spells at Dunfermline and Hull City, Andrew Ducros and Barry Prendeville.

Ducros’ failure to break through to the first team will come as a blow to many people at the club who had tipped him for future stardom when he first emerged three years ago.

There was better news for Willie Boland and Sam Shilton who have both been offered one year extensions to their contracts, although Boland may look for a move to boost his chances of first-team football.

Australian keeper Tynan Scope and Robert Miller have not been offered new deals by the club, and Richard Colwell, Jamie Williams and Chris Barnett have had their contracts terminated by mutual agreement.
