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.”
