TRANSFER: David Stockdale joins Coventry City on emergency loan

Keeper joins Sky Blues squad...

8 February 2019

Coventry City have signed Goalkeeper David Stockdale on a seven-day emergency loan.

The 33-year-old joins from Championship side Birmingham City, with Sky Blues keepers Lee Burge and Liam O’Brien both currently unavailable through injury.

Leeds-born Stockdale began his career at York City and has played for several clubs in his career, most notably in the Premier League with Fulham and in the Championship at Brighton & Hove Albion.

In 2011, his form was recognised with a call-up to the England squad.

He was named in the PFA's Championship team of 2017 after helping Brighton go up to the Premier League.

Stockdale made 39 appearances for Birmingham last season but has not played for his parent club this term, instead appearing in League One during emergency loan spells at Southend United and Wycombe Wanderers.

Stockdale will wear squad number 31, and is available to play at Rochdale on Saturday.
