TRANSFER - Eccles signs new long-term deal with Sky Blues

JOSH Eccles has signed a new long-term deal with Coventry City to remain with the club until the summer of 2027.

Eccles joined Coventry’s youth academy aged seven and has risen through the ranks to break into the first team squad.

The 22-year-old midfielder has made 19 appearances for Mark Robins’ side this season before an injury brought his campaign to a premature halt last month.

Eccles said: “I’m absolutely delighted, to be at the club I’ve been at since the age of seven and to be offered another four years here is a great feeling.

“I feel like I’ve worked so hard for this during my career, to be a professional footballer and to do it at the club you’ve been at since seven, it’s just a dream come true.

“As soon as they put a contract on the table I was delighted, and it was an easy decision to make.

“It’s been a dream of mine to come through at Coventry and thankfully I’ve done it and now I just need to keep improving and keep progressing.”
