Coventry offer solace to Ndlovu

Paris Saint-Germain defender Diego Lugano’s agent claims that
Premier League clubs have shown an interest in signing the
Uruguayan.

Lugano has struggled to make an impact at PSG since his 2011
move from Fenerbahce and has been tipped to leave in the January
transfer window.

He was linked with a switch to Brazilian side Gremio, but
Lugano’s representative Juan Figer says there is interest in the
32-year-old from England and Spain.

“There are contacts for a move from Paris St Germain in January
and our intention is to remain in Europe,” Figer told
tuttomercatoweb.com.

“There is a Spanish and two English clubs interested in
Lugano.

“Ancelotti wanted him in Paris but then, with the arrival of
Thiago Silva, did not give him space.

“There have not been any contacts with Serie A clubs and it
would certainly be a fascinating solution, but other paths seem
more viable.”

The Sky Blues were the 39-year-old Zimbabwean’s first English
club after he was spotted playing for Highlanders in his homeland,
moving to the midlands in 1991 and staying at Coventry until
1997.

A statement from the League One outfit read: “Coventry City
Football Club is saddened to hear of a tragic road accident in
Zimbabwe that has left former striker Peter Ndlovu in a critical
condition and claimed the life of his brother Adam.

“It has been reported that both were travelling from an away
match between Chicken Inn FC and a local side when Ndlovu’s car
suffered a tyre blow-out which caused the car to veer off the road
20 kilometres outside Victoria Falls.

“Ndlovu achieved iconic status during his six years with the Sky
Blues where he netted 39 goals in 176 (league) appearances for the
club.

“Coventry City sends its best wishes and condolences to the
Ndlovu family who will be in our thoughts.”
