Who says the domestic game grinds to a half during international breaks? Shortly before close of play on Friday evening, League One side Coventry City pulled off an outlandish transfer coup by signing Joe Cole from Aston Villa.
Former England international Cole, 33, has joined the Sky Blues on a 35-day emergency loan deal.
It would seem that the news came as something of a shock to most fans…

Why, even Coventry themselves couldn’t quite believe they’d pulled it off…

As things stand, Cole is set to make his debut against Rochdale on Tuesday evening.
Best of bloody luck to him.
