COVENTRY City have confirmed the signing of Shrewsbury Town captain Abu Ogogo.
The midfielder will officially join the club upon the expiry of his contract with The Shrews on July 1, having signed a two year-deal with the Sky Blues.
Manager Mark Robins said: “We are delighted that Abu has chosen to sign for Coventry City.
“He is a player with great ability and experience, and someone who is a natural leader both on and off the pitch.
“He is a real athlete and also brings a fantastic work rate and physicality, all of which makes him a brilliant capture for the club.
“We look forward to Abu being an integral part of our squad.”
A spokesperson said: “The 28 year-old has made over 375 Football League appearances during his career.
“Having risen through the ranks with Arsenal, a loan spell at Barnet attracted interest from then League Two side, Dagenham & Redbridge, who completed the signing of the midfielder in 2009.
“After making over 250 appearances during a six-year spell with Dagenham, where he was named captain, Ogogo joined Shrewsbury Town ahead of the 2015/16 season.
“At the start of last season, Ogogo was named captain of the Shrews and played a pivotal part in their push for promotion to the Championship, though they would ultimately fall just short in the Play-Off Final.”
