Coventry City have signed striker Marc Antoine-Fortune on a one-year deal.

The Sky Blues have bolstered their strikeforce with the former West Bromwich Albion man, who has trained with the Sky Blues over the past week and impressed manager Tony Mowbray.

He will wear the number 32 for the Sky Blues.

The French-Guianan forward started his career in France and went on to play for AS Nancy, Stade Brest and Lille as well as Dutch Eredivise side Utrecht.

He attracted the interest of Premier League side West Bromwich Albion in 2009 where he signed on a season-long loan deal for current City boss Mowbray.

Following the conclusion of the loan, Mowbray signed Fortune again for Scottish Premiership side Celtic in 2009 before he moved back to the Black Country for a three-year spell with Albion.

Before the summer, Fortune enjoyed two years at Wigan Athletic and Mowbray has expressed his delight at linking up with the 34-year old once again. 

The City boss said: "Marc has trained with the club for the past week and I'm delighted we've finally been able to get him signed up.

"I've signed Marc at Celtic and West Bromwich Albion, and he's played in the Premier League and Champions League for me. 

"He'll give the squad a physical presence up front and he'll bring plenty of experience to the squad, which the young players can tap into.

"He's a great option for us to have and with Marc in our squad, I think we've got a better balance in the forward areas."
