Coventry set to complete move for Portsmouth's Conor Chaplin
Conor Chaplin will tomorrow complete his long-anticipated switch to Coventry.
The News understands the striker is scheduled for a Sky Blues medicalÂ and will signÂ ahead of Friday's loan deadline.
Under terms of the agreement, theÂ 21-year-old departs for the Ricoh Arena on loan, with the move turned into a permanent deal in January.
That ensuresÂ Pompey receive a fee for Chaplin, who is out of contract at the season's end.
Providing there is no late hitch, it will finally bring a satisfactory conclusion to a transfer saga spanning almost two months.
Chaplin has become increasingly frustrated over delays in the switch, culminating in his insistence he was not in the '˜right frame of mind' for last weekend's trip to Doncaster.
However, Kenny Jackett has been consistently clear that the striker would not be allowed to depart until a replacement had been identified.
Now, following the recruitment of Andre Green and with the Blues still in the market for additional firepower, Chaplin has his wish.
