Coventry City defender Jordan Clarke has completed his move to League One side Scunthorpe United for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year old progressed from the City Academy to the first-team and went on to make 125 league appearances for the club, scoring four goals.

Clarke has made 14 appearances for the Sky Blues this season, scoring one goal and has recently returned from a loan spell at Yeovil Town where he made seven appearances.

City boss Steven Pressley said: "Although Jordan has been at this football club for close to 15 years, I have fortunately worked with him for just a little short of two years. He is a product of the club's Academy system and a player we should all be proud of.

"His attitude has been exemplary during my time here but after such an impressive season last term, his chances have been limited this campaign.

"I discussed this situation with Jordan and we both agreed after I could not guarantee regular first-team football that at his age and his stage of career, it would be best for him to seek a new opportunity.

"Again, on behalf of everyone at the football club, we would like to thank him for his efforts and contribution during his 15-year period at this club and wish him every success for the future."
