Coventry City defender Jordan Willis has signed a new deal until June 2018 with the Sky Blues.

The 21-year old defender's current contract was up at the end of this season having already made over 80 appearances for City in all competitions, developing through the City Academy.

Willis made his debut for the Sky Blues against Southampton during the 2011/12 season, at the age of 17, and became a key member of the first-team during the 2013/14 season. 

The Coventry-born defender made 40 appearances for the first-team last season and started the four opening games of the season before suffering an ankle injury in the 2-1 defeat against Walsall which has kept him side-lined since.

City boss Tony Mowbray said: "We're delighted to get Jordan tied down to a longer deal at the club.

"Since I walked in the door at the back end of last season, I've been really impressed with the qualities and attributes Jordan possesses.

"He has fantastic physical attributes, strength and speed, and he is at an age where I believe he can continue to develop in the right environment at the club.

"I'm looking forward to working with him on the training pitch in the future as we continue to look at ways to strengthen our future squad."
