Veteran Wise seals Coventry move
Dennis Wise
Wise will add considerable experience to the Coventry squad
Coventry have signed veteran midfielder Dennis Wise until the end of the season on a pay-per-play deal.

Wise, 39, left Southampton following the appointment of George Burley as manager in December.

The former England midfielder counts Chelsea, Wimbledon, Leicester and Millwall among his former clubs.

Coventry manager Micky Adams said: "Dennis has a proven pedigree at the highest level and will offer a lot to our squad both on and off the pitch."

Adams has assured fans Wise will only be paid if he plays for the Sky Blues, who currently have debts estimated at 20m.

He said: "This is not a pay day for Dennis and he's not signing for us for financial reasons.

"He's an experienced professional who's coming to help us out on a short-term deal.

"I think his addition to the squad will benefit everybody."
