Coventry City have signed Al Bangura on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

The former Watford midfielder has joined the club until May 25th having spent the last month on trial with the Sky Blues.

Bangura has played five Under-21s games for the Sky Blues and captained the side in the 2-0 win over Barnsley Under-21s yesterday. 

The 27-year old joined Championship side Watford in 2005 and made over 60 league appearances for the Hornets during a four-year spell.

Bangura also had spells at Blackpool and Turkish Super Lig side Mersin before he joined Forest Green Rovers in 2011 and made over 80 appearances for the Conference side in a three-year spell.

City manager Tony Mowbray said: "We've been impressed with the way Al has performed in training and for the Under-21s, and the way he has improved his fitness during his time with the club.

"He gives us an option we currently don't have as he is a combative midfielder and even though he has been signed as cover, I want to see him force his way into the team.

"We've recently added Grant Ward to that position but I'm expecting Al to provide real competition in that area and competition is a cornerstone for any successful football club."

Bangura will wear the No.24 shirt during his time with the Sky Blues.
