Breen Could Go As Hartson Is Admired

Gary Breen could be on his way to Fulham, while the Sky Blues are thought to be lining up a deal to buy John Hartson from Wimbledon.

Coventry chairman Bryan Richardson has denied that he is planning to sell Breen for £3.5 million.

Breen, who has been unsettled at Highfield Road after struggling to get in the team earlier this season, is being looked at as a replacement for injured Fulham Chris Coleman, who broke his leg in three places in a car accident last week.

It is reported on the Fulham FC website that a £3.5 million deal is being considered for the 27-year-old Eire centre-back.

Breen, seen by many as the Sky Blues’ best defender, often has to play out of position at full-back, and could be in favour of a move to London, although he would have to get used to 7am training sessions and an alcohol ban imposed by French coach Jean Tigana.

The drop down a division would be temporary as Fulham are seen as dead-certs for promotion.

Meanwhile Welsh international John Hartson is thought to be close to a £2 million move to Highfield Road to solve Coventry’s goalscoring problems.

Often overweight and injury prone, Hartson is believed to want to return to the Premiership after making his name at Arsenal as a teenager. He moved to the Dons after failing to make the team regularly at West Ham.

Any deal could be linked to appearances in case his injury problems return.
