Coventry look set to sign Martin Cranie having agreed an undisclosed fee with Portsmouth.
The England Under-21 defender is due at the Ricoh Arena to undergo a medical, with the Coca-Cola Championship club hoping to complete the deal by Thursday.
Cranie, 22, has managed just two Premier League appearances during his three years at Fratton Park.
He was one of the top performers for England at this summer's European Championship, netting the opening goal in the dramatic semi-final triumph over hosts Sweden.
