League One outfit Coventry City have signed Blackpool striker Nathan Eccleston on loan for the remainder of the season, according to Sky Sports.

Ecclestone joined the Seasiders in the summer of 2012 following a difficult period at Liverpool, where he failed to make an impression on then manager Kenny Daglish. But he has also struggled to make his mark in the Blackpool team, and this has resulted in loan spells at lower league outfits Tranmere Rovers and Carlisle. 

Following this, Coventry manager Steven Pressley has decided that Eccleston could be the answer to his sides' striking issues. Pressley lost star striker to Leon Clarke to Wolverhampton earlier this year and feels that the 23-year-old could be the key. 

"We are going into a crucial period in the season and with only two recognised strikers in the current squad it was vital we secured a third before Thursday's deadline," Pressley told Coventry's official website. 

"Nathan comes into the club with great potential, and at 23 years old he still has a lot to prove. We certainly hope he can make a big impression between now and the season's end," he added. 

Coventry currently sit in 18th place in League One, after a 10 points deduction left Pressley's side struggling from the beginning of the season.
