Sky Blues full-back Aaron Phillips signs a contract extension until 2016

Coventry City defender Aaron Phillips has signed a new deal which keeps him at the club until the summer of 2016.
 
The 20-year-old penned an extension to his current contract which sees him commit his future to the Sky Blues for the next two-and-a-half years.
 
Phillips made his first team debut as a substitute in the Sky Blues' 3-2 opening day defeat at Crawley Town in August but has since gone on to make another 11 appearances in all competitions as well as scoring his first senior goal in City's 1-1 draw with Wolves at Molineux back in October.

Manager Steven Pressley said: "Aaron is another young player that we think very highly of and we're delighted to extend his stay.

"He's grabbed his opportunity with both hands and on a number of occasions this season he has shown what he is capable of and also the level of potential he has to become even better.

"He has great energy and enthusiasm and has shown tremendous maturity and attitude for somebody of his age. Despite only making his debut this season he has displayed his ability and desire to come on and make an impact on games in both his tackling and his ambition to get high up the pitch – something which led to his first goal.

"I'm really happy for the kid, he's the kind of young player that we want coming through our system and he fully deserves his new deal."
