Eastwood fits the bill - Coleman

Freddy Eastwood
Eastwood will hope to rediscover his best form with Coventry

Coventry City manager Chris Coleman is backing new signing Freddy Eastwood to become an instant hero at the club.

The Wales striker, 24, completed his transfer from Wolves on Saturday and Coleman insists Eastwood has all the right attributes to be a success.

Coleman told BBC Coventry & Warwickshire: "He is a international and he is a good goalscorer.

"He is one of those characters, no matter which club he is at, who is almost like a cult hero."

Coleman added: "He is the type of player that all supporters like to watch.

"We know he is going to fit in. He is a quality player and he has a lot to offer at this level."

Eastwood headed off on Monday along with his new team-mates to Switzerland, where they will play two pre-season friendlies on their five-day trip.
