We are delighted to confirm the signing of Jordy Hiwula from Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed fee.
The 23 year-old striker has joined the Sky Blues on a two year-deal from the Premier League side.
Born in Manchester, Jordy rose through the ranks at local side Manchester City, scoring 20 goals in 31 appearances for the Under 21’s during the 2013/14 season, earning his first professional deal with the club.
He then went out on loan to Yeovil Town and Walsall, where he scored 9 goals in 19 games with the latter during a three-month loan at the end of the 2014/15 season.
His impressive form then caught the attention of Huddersfield Town, who signed the striker for an undisclosed fee.
Hiwula has since had loan spells with League One sides; Wigan Athletic, Walsall, Bradford City and Fleetwood Town.
Upon the completion of the deal, Sky Blues Boss Mark Robins had this to say:
He said: “We are delighted to bring Jordy in, he’s still a young striker at 23, but has a lot of experience at this level with a decent goal scoring record, which we want to improve.
“He has good attributes and we’ve watched him for a while as part of our scouting recruitment and we are looking forward to working with him and helping him to improve.
“He’s not a direct replacement for Marc McNulty, but is another component in our squad and this isn’t the end of our recruitment in this window.”
