Coventry City have signed Bournemouth defender Baily Cargill on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year old left-sided centre-back joins the Sky Blues for the rest of the 2015/16 campaign to bolster the club's defensive options. 

Cargill spent time in the Leicester City and Southampton Academies before joining Bournemouth, signing his professional with the Cherries in 2012.

He has spent time out on loan at non-league sides AFC Totton, Welling United and Torquay United, and has starred for Bournemouth's Under-21s side.

Cargill has also received international recognition having been picked for the England U20s side, picking up seven caps for the young Lions.

The City boss Tony Mowbray said: "We're delighted to welcome Baily to the club for the rest of the season.

"I've made no secret of my desire to bolster our defensive options and Baily gives us a valuable option for the rest of the season.

"He has great physical attributes, tall and strong, and we're hopeful he can help our defensive record from now until the end of the season."
