Coventry City have ruled themselves out of running to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Michael Kightly.

The former non-league protege has seen fitness problems and the form of the likes of Adam Hammill restrict his involvement in the past two years.

The former Tottenham Hotspur youth starlet was plucked from Grays Athletic after being released by Southend United, and was signed for just £25,000 by Mick McCarthy.

 

After his release from Spurs, he moved to Basildon Town and was soon picked up by Southend, before just 12 first-team appearance led to another heartbreaking release for the 25-year-old.

Such were his performances for Wolves during the 2006/07 season that he was linked with a return to Tottenham, but injury problems have ruined his impact at Molineux.
