LUKE Williams has joined Coventry City on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 21-year-old has recently returned from a successful spell on loan with Scunthorpe United.

It is expected Williams will go straight in to Steven Pressley's squad for Saturday's game against Preston Deepdale, with the Sky Blues' next game at home to Scunthorpe.

City have won just one of their last eight games and currently lie 19th in League One, just three points and two places above the relegation zone.

This is the third League One loan for Williams, who has made five appearances for Boro this season, with a successful spell with Hartlepool marking the first time away from his parent club for the Normanby youngster.
