STRIKER Daniel Agyei will provide the Sky Blues with more power and pace in attack according to manager to Mowbray after moving to the Ricoh Arena on a five-month loan from Premier League side Burnley.

The 19-year-old becomes the club’s seventh summer signing and has been handed the number nine shirt for the 2016/17 season.

Agyei joined up with his new team mates on Thursday and is likely to make his debut when Mowbray’s side make the trip up north to face Bradford City on Saturday.

“I’m pleased to have added Daniel to the squad,” said Mowbray. “He is a young player with huge potential and we are confident he can make a positive contribution to our team.

“ThIs club has a good record of getting the best out of young Premier League talent and Daniel will certainly add some power and pace to our attack.

“He has been involved with the team’s training today, ahead of the Bradford fixture at the weekend, and I’m looking forward to working with him during his spell at the club.”

Agyei made a name for himself at AFC Wimbledon where he scored 35 times for the club’s youth setup during the 2014/15 season which earned him a move Burnley last year.

The London-born striker is yet to make his competitive debut for Burnley despite appearing in a handful of friendlies over the summer.
