Sky Blues hero lined up for coaching role
Coventry City hero Michael Doyle could be set to take his first step towards becoming a manager.
National League side Notts County could be poised to turn to him to fill their assistant manager vacancy as they try once again to escape non-league next season.
The Magpies now without an assistant boss after Neal Ardley’s number two, Neil Cox, was unveiled as Scunthorpe United’s new first-team boss.
The former Scunny player has worked with Ardley for eight seasons at Meadow Lane and at AFC Wimbledon – but now that long-term partnership will come to an end.
And that could pave the way for Doyle to take his first steps towards starting a managerial career of his own.
City miss out on reported transfer target
City’s Championship rivals Stoke City have landed the signature of former Sheffield Wednesday left-back Morgan Fox.
The 26-year-old was linked with a move to join Mark Robins’ ranks last month with the City boss, at the time, said to be chasing a left-sided defender.
Robins may well still be in the market for reinforcements in that position, even after landing a season-long loan deal for Wolves youngster Ryan Giles.
But any interest he may have previously held in Fox will now come to an end after the former Notts County and Charlton Athletic man put pen to paper on a deal at the Bet365 stadium.
Richard Keogh returns to football
Former Sky Blues defender Richard Keogh has signed for MK Dons.
The 33-year-old has joined the League One club as a free agent
Keogh had been looking for a club since he was sacked by Derby County in October on the grounds of gross misconduct after he was involved in a car crash which resulted in team-mates Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett being convicted of drink-driving.
The Republic of Ireland international suffered a serious knee injury in the incident, which he is still in the process of recovering from.
He lost an appeal against his sacking and has since taken the matter to the EFL.
