Coventry will hold a press conference at 2.30pm on Thursday afternoon to announce their new manager.

Aidy Boothroyd is widely expected to be the new man at the helm to replace Chris Coleman, although the Coca-Cola Championship are yet to officially confirm the Colchester boss. The Sky Blues have already agreed a compensation package with the League One outfit, whom Boothroyd led to the fringes of the play-offs this season.

United chairman Robbie Cowling told Colchester's official website: "Following an approach from Coventry City to speak to Aidy Boothroyd, permission was given to speak to him about their managerial position."

He added: "The two clubs have also agreed a figure for compensation for Aidy's services, should negotiations to appoint him as manager prove successful."
