First Words | Jordan Young

The midfielder joins the Sky Blues following an impressive trial...

16 August 2019

Sky Blues latest summer signing, Jordan Young is delighted to have finally put pen to paper on a deal at Coventry City.

The midfielder has been with the club during pre-season and having impressed in training and in under-23s fixtures, Jordan has signed a one-year-deal.

Speaking about signing his contract with the club, Young told how he has enjoyed his time here so far.

He said: “It’s been a while but it’s good to finally get the deal done.

“It’s perfect for me, I’ve loved it since I’ve been here and I’ve really enjoyed working with the lads and I’m glad that it’s all sorted.”

After a difficult two years for the player whilst with former club Swindon Town, Young revealed how his time with Coventry has made him fall back in love with football.

“I’ve loved pre-season so I’m happy that now I can kick on and everything is sorted.

“It’s made me realise how much I actually love football, because before this I haven’t had the best two years and being here has been great.”

Some supporters may recognise Jordan from recent under-23s matches, as the midfielder has been involved in most fixtures in pre-season.

Young also started for City in their most recent 2-1 win over Barnsley and he believes the game time with his new teammates has helped him settle.

“It’s been good to play some games in pre-season to get to know the lads and the way of playing here at Coventry.

“It’s been good to play with the 23s as well and we got off to a good start earlier this week and everyone here is great and I can’t wait to get going.”

Now all the paper work is done, the 20-year-old can now focus on his football with the Sky Blues.

The midfielder is hoping he can add some creativity in midfield as he looks to try and break into the first team.

“I’m an attacking player, so I’m hoping I can provide some goals and assists from midfield during the season.

“I want to try and break into the first team and make as many appearances as I can and just enjoy my football.”
