PAUL Jewell has knocked down reports that he is interested in signing Coventry City striker Marlon King on loan.

Town manager Paul Jewell IS on the look-out for a loan player before this Saturday’s trip to Leeds United, but he is targeting a central midfielder rather than a striker.

Jewell said: “It’s not true that I have made an enquiry about Marlon King.

“I did try to sign him while I was the manager at Derby, but I haven’t made an enquiry to Coventry or to his agent. It’s not true,” added Jewell.
