Clarke-Harris agrees deal with Coventry

ROTHERHAM United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris has agreed to join Coventry City on a two-year deal.

The Sky Blues have announced that the 23-year-old will officially link up with them upon the expiry of his contract with the Millers on July 1.

Clarke-Harris had been loan at Coventry since January, netting four times as they secured promotion back to League One.

Sky Blues boss — and former Millers chief — Mark Robins said: "We’re very pleased to agree to sign Jonson on a permanent basis.

“Jonson was an important part of the squad that won promotion last season and showed the attributes we know he has during his loan spell with us.

“He brings a strength and physicality to our play which will be important assets for us, as well as his goalscoring threat, and we hope he will have a big impact in League One.”

Clarke-Harris was made available for transfer by Rotherham last month after a difficult four years at the AESSEAL New York Stadium in which he struggled to fulfil his potential. He also had loan spells at Doncaster and MK Dons.

The permanent move to Coventry strengthens his connections with the club where he started his career. He was a prolific goalscorer at U18s level for the Sky Blues. He is also still the youngest ever to play for Coventry, at 16 years and 21 days.
