Kanchelskis Next On The Menu

Coventry City has been linked with another Rangers winger Ė this time itís Andrei Kanchelskis.

Reports from Russia suggest that the Ukrainian could be on his way to Highfield Road.

The former Manchester Untied, Everton and Fiorentina player is now aged 31. The prospects of a move south are more feasible for him as he is currently behind Neil McCann and Jorg Albertz in the pecking order.

Gordon Strachan has had offers for both these players accepted and then withdrawn. He said he is keen to sign someone before Saturdayís game with Middlesbrough, but will not be stampeded into getting the wrong person.

Coventry are certainly facing a striking problem this weekend. With Ysrael Zuniga off on international duty, Moustapha Hadji injured and no replacements for Robbie Keane or Noel Whelan signed, there is precious little striking cover.

Cedric Roussel is certain to start, and it seems likely that 18-year-old Jay Bothroyd will be thrown in at the deep end.

John Aloisi has begun to return to action after his long injury lay-off, but isnít yet match fit. Strachan might use him as he is keen to develop Bothroyd.

Strachan is also thought to be interested in Norwich Cityís Craig Bellamy, who is rated at £4 million, but suffered a cruciate ligament injury last season.

He is reported to be waiting until the middle of the season to make a bid, but his hand might be forced by interest from other Premiership clubs.
