Hendry, Roussel, Palmer All Make For The Exit

Ninety-three years’ worth of footballer are leaving Highfield Road in a pre-relegation clearout.

Colin Hendry has finally completed his move to Bolton Wanderers after a successful loan period.

Hendry, who wanted to leave after losing his place in the Coventry line-up so he could try and prolong his international career.

Despite Hendry falling out of favour with Gordon Strachan, Bolton boss Sam Allardyce rates him highly.

He has signed in time for the fifth round FA Cup clash with Blackburn Rovers. The deal had been delayed because of a row over a fee.

It has now been agreed that the Bolton will play Coventry £500,000 if they win promotion to the Premier League.

Disaffected Carlton Palmer – born two days before the 35-year-old Hendry  - is also on his way out, going to relegation threatened Sheffield Wednesday on loan.

Caretaker boss Peter Shreeves said:

"I worked with Carlton at Nottingham Forest, so I know what an influential player he can be.

"He obviously made his name here before, so I'm sure this will be a boost to everyone at Hillsborough."

And the youngest of the trio Cedric Roussel, aged 23, is also close to signing for Wolves after Coventry agreed a £1.53 million deal.

The Belgian striker who has fallen out of favour recently had been reluctant to move down a division, but changed his mind after speaking to new Wolves boss David Jones.
