COVENTRY City have confirmed their second signing of the summer is 24-year-old Scottish striker Marc McNulty from Sheffield United.

The club’s website announced this afternoon he has agreed a contract and will join the club following the expiry of his contract with the Yorkshire club who have won promotion to the Championship.

He has agreed a two-year deal with the Sky Blues.

Coventry City boss Mark Robins said: “We are delighted to sign Marc, after beating a number of clubs to secure his signature.

“Marc is a natural goalscorer who is comfortable using either foot and he will be a real threat in front of goal for us.

“Goalscoring was clearly an area requiring improvement from last season, and I’m delighted to have been given the support to improve this area with a player of Marc’s undoubted quality.

“I will continue to work hard with Tommy Widdrington (head of recruitment) and the support of the club’s board to identify and recruit the calibre of players which we need push for promotion next season.”

McNulty started his career with Scottish side Livingston where he scored 41 goals in 91 league appearances.

The 5′ 10” striker moved to The Blades in May 2014.

He has had loan spells at Portsmouth, in 2015-16, where he scored 10 goals in 27 League Two games, and League One promotion-chasing side Bradford City last season, who play Milwall in Saturday’s play-off final.
