Hartson Move Is Off And On Again

The yo-yoing surrounding John Hartsonís possible move to Coventry is continuing, with different sides claiming that the deal is on and off.

The player was seen at Highfield Road yesterday to resume talks over his proposed move from Wimbledon.

A £5 million switch broke down last month when Cedric Roussel refused to move in the opposite direction as part of the deal.

Coventry City, desperate for goals, now say that they have re-opened discussions with a view to paying the entire sum in cash.

But Hartsonís agent Jonathon Barnett said the deal is dead:

"It's all been speculation and paper talk - ifs, whats and maybes."

Meanwhile Cedric Roussel, who lashed out at the Coventry City board over the pressure they put him under to go to Wimbledon, is now a target for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves assistant manager John Ward said:

"The deal is still ongoing, we're still involved with Coventry on this.

"We've put in a telephone enquiry basically to see what the situation is at Coventry's end and we're just waiting to see what they say."
