Peter Reid is looking to extend the loan of Manchester United's Luke Steele.Coventry City boss Peter Reid is looking to extend the loan of Manchester United goalkeeper Luke Steele into the New Year.
Steele has established himself as number one at Highfield Road after joining the Sky Blues earlier in the month, displacing Scott Shearer.
Reid, who also has striker Eddie Johnson on loan from Old Trafford, now wants to try and retain the 22-year-old for an extended period and is confident that Sir Alex Ferguson will give his consent.
"I am hopeful that we can do something to keep him longer," he declared.
"We keep in contact with United. Obviously I know Sir Alex (Ferguson) and I think he is pleased with the education Luke is getting.
"I don't know how long I will be able to keep him but he has been fantastic since he came here to Coventry."
