"Absolutely buzzing to come down and get started. I was really impressed yesterday." - Coventry City's Adam Jackson

The Sky Blues snapped up the 21-year old centre-back yesterday and he's delighted to be at City after playing for the Under-21s yesterday...

Coventry City's latest signing Adam Jackson has expressed his delight at linking up with City boss Tony Mowbray once again.

The Sky Blues snapped up the 21-year old centre-back defender on a one-month emergency loan deal yesterday as the City boss looks to weigh up his defensive options.

Jackson is a player Mowbray knows well from his time at Middlesbrough and the centre-back started for the Under-21s yesterday in the 3-3 draw against QPR.

Having completed his short-term loan deal, Jackson hopes to be able to impress during his time at the club in training and in games.

Jackson admitted: "Absolutely buzzing to come down the road and get started. I really wanted to take this opportunity when it came up.

"Middlesbrough have done really well over the years so it's been difficult to make a break-through there. I hope to be able to do that here.

"I've struggled to get a run of games together as well at times so it's been a bit hit and miss so hopefully I can come here and work really hard in training.

"I know the manager, Jamie Clapham and Mark Venus from when they were at Middlesbrough so it was a no-brainer for me to come and join them here."

Jackson made his City bow for the Under-21s yesterday as George Thomas notched a brace and Lateef Elford-Alliyu scored in a 3-3 draw at the Ricoh Arena.

The former England Under-19s international partnered Cian Harries in defence and he admitted he was impressed with his team-mates, in particular his central defensive partner.

He added: "There is a lot of quality in the team and it seemed everyone liked to play their football. I like to play out of the back so it suits me.

"I think it's important as you should be able to start attacks from defence which will help out the midfield. Obviously, it's more high risk but if it gives us more chances at the other end, then it's worth it.

"Cian Harries has got a wand of a left foot and it was good to see him try and play as well. I was really impressed with the whole team and you can tell why they've been doing so well this season.

"It was really nice to get started straight away and hopefully I'll enjoy my time here."
