TRANSFER - Coventry City confirm Jordan Shipley departure to Shrewsbury

COVENTRY City have confirmed the departure of homegrown midfielder Jordan Shipley to League One side Shrewsbury Town.

Shipley has spent his entire career with the Sky Blues and memorably scored in their League Two play-off final win against Exeter City at Wembley in 2017/18.

The midfielder has been with the club since the age of seven and progressed through the academy to become a first-team regular.

Shipley helped the club clinch the League One title in the curtailed 2019/20 season and made 27 appearances in the second tier last season.

However, the 24-year-old featured just 11 times in the league this season and felt he needed regular football at this stage of his career as he made the difficult decision to leave his boyhood club.

He leaves the club having made 163 appearances scoring 20 goals and joins the Shrews on a three-year-deal for an undisclosed fee.

Manager Mark Robins told ccfc.co.uk: “As Jordan leaves Coventry City, I would like to thank him for his huge contribution to the club.

“He was a key part of the promotions from League Two and from League One, and an important and popular member of the squad for a number of years.

“As an Academy graduate, he is a great role model for young players at the club for what they can achieve.

“He is held in high esteem by players, coaching staff and supporters for all he has achieved and the way that he has conducted himself on and off the field.

“He wants and needs to play regular football, and that is something he hopes to get at Shrewsbury.

“Jordan has played an unbelievable part in our rise from League Two, and we all wish him the best of luck for the future.”
