Nathan Eccleston: Coventry City sign Blackpool striker on loan

Nathan Eccleston

Coventry City have signed Blackpool striker Nathan Eccleston on loan until the end of the season.

The 23-year-old, who started his career at Liverpool, is available for Wednesday night's game against fellow League One strugglers Stevenage at Sixfields.

"Nathan comes into the club with great potential," said boss Steven Pressley.

"He has a lot to prove but we certainly hope he makes a big impression between now and season's end," he added.

"We are going into a crucial period in the season and, with only two recognised strikers in the current squad, it was vital we secured a third before Thursday's deadline."

Eccleston, who made his Liverpool debut as an 18-year-old, had loan spells at Huddersfield Town, Charlton Athletic and Rochdale before joining Blackpool in August 2012. He has since had further loan stints at Tranmere Rovers and Carlisle United.
