Report: Player who trained with Wednesday last month could now join relegation rivals Coventry City

A player who recently trained with Sheffield Wednesday could now join Coventry City, according to Alan Nixon.

Nixon claims Coventry are ‘checking into Lee Camp as an emergency signing for the second time in recent weeks.’

Camp was pictured at Middlewood Road last month, though it it is not thought that Wednesday were considering offering a contract to the veteran goalkeeper.

Camp played under the then-Owls manager Garry Monk at Birmingham City – the club who released him at the end of last season.

But a goalkeeping crisis at Coventry could see the former Northern Ireland international snapped up by one of Wednesday’s relegation rivals, with clubs still allowed to register free agents.

Coventry, who are managed by the former Owls striker Mark Robins, currently occupy the position directly above the Championship’s relegation places and are five points clear of Tony Pulis’s team.

They travel to Hillsborough the week before Christmas, with Camp potentially in tow.

Wednesday recently welcomed back another 36-year-old shot-stopper, Keiren Westwood, after almost 12 months in exile under Monk.

Westwood, though, was injured just 13 minutes into his second appearance of the season at Swansea on Wednesday.

Would the prospective Coventry City recruit have been a good addition for Wednesday?
