Coventry City goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook has signed a contract extension with the Sky Blues.

The 21-year old goalkeeper has penned a two and a half year contract extension with the Sky Blues until June 2018 after his impressive form during the 2015/16 season.

The former Arsenal trainee joined the Sky Blues in July 2014 and enjoyed a loan spell at Nuneaton Town during the 2014/15 season, making 17 appearances, keeping 10 clean sheets in the process.

Following an illness to Lee Burge, Charles-Cook made his league debut in the 3-0 win over Shrewsbury Town and went on to break Steve Ogrizovic's post-war record for the most consecutive minutes without conceding a goal.

City manager Tony Mowbray has been delighted with the young goalkeeper's progress this season and hopes Charles-Cook will continue to develop during his extended period at the club.

Mowbray said: "I've been delighted with Reice this season, on and off the field, and he is fully deserving of his new deal.

"Having started the season behind Lee Burge, his desire and application on the training pitch to become better was noticeable and when he got into the first-team, he took his opportunity exceptionally well.

"There is still more improvements for him to make and by no means is he the finished product, but I'm sure with the hard work he puts in and with Lee Burge continuing to push him every day in training, the club is very healthy at the moment with two excellent young goalkeepers.

"As I've said previously, the club needs to protect it's young assets and Reice is one of them. We're delighted to get the deal signed and I'm sure he'll continue his impressive form this season and beyond."
