Paul Hall Looks To Move On

Coventry City midfielder Paul Hall has fired a message to Premiership clubs that he is available for transfer and capable of playing at the highest level.

The Jamaican international joined City from Portsmouth for 300,000 last summer but has failed to make any impression in the Sky Blues first team, being involved in just a handful of the early matches.

At the end of the season City boss Gordon Strachan officially transfer listed the player and Hall is now looking for the move that will kick start his career.

He said:

"I have had a key-hole operation about a month ago on my right knee because it was giving me some pain in pre-season, which was a disappointment because I felt that I was doing very well.

"I will be back playing football in a couple of weeks because I just have to get my fitness back.

"At the moment I am still a Coventry City player but it is common knowledge that I am transfer listed, I was loaned out to Bury last season, and I am not part of the first team squad.

"It has become pretty clear to me that I will not get another chance at Coventry, there is a good bunch of lads here but it is a matter of opinions and I just don’t fit into the manager’s opinion."

But the World Cup star stressed that his experience at Highfield Road had not put him off Premiership football.

He said:

"To be honest with you I am an ambitious player and just because one person thinks I can’t do it in the Premiership doesn’t mean I can’t go elsewhere and produce – be it in two years or two weeks.

"Other clubs will want to see me play and hopefully I will get the chance to figure in the reserves and do enough to impress prospective buyers."
