Coventry City Football Club have offered six Academy second-year scholars professional contracts.
 
George Thomas, Cian Harries, Dion Kelly-Evans, Devon Kelly-Evans, Ben Stevenson and Kyle Spence have all been offered professional deals with the club following their progress with the Under-18s this season.
 
James Maddison has already penned a three-year deal with the club having been offered his contract in November which means seven players from the group have been offered contracts.
 
Academy Manager Richard Stevens said: "We're delighted to see so many of our Academy graduates get offered a professional deal at the club this season. 

"It's even more satisfying when five of these boys have been at the club since the age of nine. There will be many full and part time staff who have invested time in these boys over the years and we must thank them also.
 
"With Jason Farndon's leadership and coaching, the players have shown fantastic levels of progression this year which has been evident in their performances in the FA Youth Cup and in the League.
 
"Unfortunately, we decided not to offer contracts to Luke Bromley, Kyle Barnett and Jake Richards, and we will now be working with them to help ensure they can continue their footballing career at another club."
 
Under-18s coach Jason Farndon said: "It has been a fantastic year for the group and they should all be extremely proud of their efforts.
 
"Whilst we always knew this age group was a talented group, the levels of progression I've seen from the players since they became scholars has been outstanding.
 
"A lot has been made of James Maddison and George Thomas' talents, but every other player has a real chance to become the club's stars of the future.
 
"It is a great day for all of the Academy staff and myself, who has had the pleasure of being part of their journey."
 
Kyle Barnett, Luke Bromley and Jake Richards haven't been offered professional deals with the club and will leave the club at the end of the season.
