Young signs for the Sky Blues

Coventry Editorial 16th Aug, 2019   0

MIDFIELDER Jordan Young has put pen-to-paper with Coventry City, signing a one-year contract with the club.

The 20-year-old joins the club following a successful trial during pre-season, where he made appearances for the first team and under-23s,

He now works towards breaking into the first team, having previously come through the ranks at League Two side Swindon Town and making seven appearances for the Robins.

Under-23s coach Luke Tisdale commended Young on earning a deal with the club, and believes he can continue his progression with the Sky Blues.

“Jordan is someone that we’ve had on our radar for a while, we knew about him last season and he is a good player and a good person,” he said.

“He has played in a few games for us and he is someone who is technically very good, he can play in a variety of positions and that’s something we will be looking at.

“Jordan has an eye for a pass and will add value to the group, he has shown great attitude over the course of the summer and applied himself well.”

Young, meanwhile, added his delight to join the club, and admits the summer has re-ignited his love for the game.

“It’s been a while but it’s good to finally get the deal done,” he said.

“It’s perfect for me, I’ve loved it since I’ve been here and I’ve really enjoyed working with the lads and I’m glad that it’s all sorted.

“I’ve loved pre-season so I’m happy that now I can kick on and everything is sorted.

“It’s made me realise how much I actually love football, because before this I haven’t had the best two years and being here has been great.

“I want to try and break into the first team and make as many appearances as I can and just enjoy my football.”
