STEVEN Pressley has wished defender Jordan Clarke all the best for the future after the Sky Blues academy graduate agreed to join Scunthorpe United for an undiscolsed fee.

Clarke, who had recently returned from an impressed loan spell with fellow League One outfit Yeovil Town, has joined the Irons and will link up with former Sky Blues boss Mark Robins and striker Gary McSheffrey.

The 23-year-old progressed through the club’s academy and went on to make 125 league appearances for the club, scoring four goals.

But under Pressley his first team opportunities became limited and Clarke has opted for a move away from the Ricoh Arena.

“Although Jordan has been at this football club for close to 15 years, I have fortunately worked with him for just a little short of two years,” said Pressley. “He is a product of the club’s Academy system and a player we should all be proud of.

“His attitude has been exemplary during my time here but after such an impressive season last term, his chances have been limited this campaign.

“I discussed this situation with Jordan and we both agreed after I could not guarantee regular first-team football that at his age and his stage of career, it would be best for him to seek a new opportunity.

“Again, on behalf of everyone at the football club, we would like to thank him for his efforts and contribution during his 15-year period at this club and wish him every success for the future.”
