SIGNING: Coventry City sign West Bromwich Albion striker Andre Wright on a loan agreement until January

31 August 2016

The Sky Blues agree terms with forward Andre Wright from Premier League side West Brom, subject to FA and Football League approval...

Coventry City have signed West Brom striker Andre Wright on a standard loan agreement until 9th January, 2017. 

The 19-year-old began last season on loan at Kidderminster, playing on 12 occasions, before making the switch to Torquay United in November. 

An initial short-term loan deal was extended in January until the end of the season as Wright hit four goals in ten games for the Gulls, helping them stave off relegation.

The youngster has represented the Baggies Under-21 side and played the full 90 minutes in the Checkatrade Trophy defeat to Millwall last night.   

Coventry City Manager, Tony Mowbray said: “I’m pleased to have signed Andre from West Brom as he’ll add something different to our strike force.
“He is in an important stage of his development and hopefully this move will give him the chance to play competitive first-team football and progress as a player.
"We've been looking to add quality to our forward line throughout the summer, and despite his young age, I believe Andre will give us a valuable option in attack.”
