Coventry striker Lukas Jutkiewicz will soon be a Premier League player, according to his manager Andy Thorn.

Thorn brought the 22-year-old to the Ricoh Arena from Everton in July 2010, and after managing to keep hold of the player in the transfer window, Thorn has tipped Jutkiewicz to soon be playing in the top flight.

Thorn told the Coventry Telegraph: "I brought Juke to the club so I know how good he is and his time will come. He'll play in the Premiership one day, and hopefully that will be with us."

He added: "I think the world of him because he's got loads of talent but I think the world of Coventry as well and that's why it was important to keep him in the window."

Jutkiewicz hit nine goals last season and has already notched two in the current campaign,

His second-half strike at Middlesbrough earned Coventry a valuable point in their last outing.
