TRANSFER: Coventry City agree to sign Ben Wilson

23 May 2019

Coventry City can confirm that Ben Wilson has agreed a contract with the football club and will officially join the Sky Blues when his current deal expires with Bradford City.

The goalkeeper has agreed a three-year contract with Coventry City, which will start in July.

The 26-year-old made six appearances for The Bantams last season, including in Bradford’s away game against the Sky Blues in April.

The 6 foot 1 shot stopper started his career at Sunderland, before spells at Accrington Stanley and Cardiff City. During his time at the Bluebirds, Wilson also played on loan at AFC Wimbledon, Rochdale, Oldham and AFC Telford.

Coventry City Manager Mark Robins said: "We’re pleased to agree to bring Ben to the Club.

“He is a goalkeeper who has a strong presence and all the attributes a good goalkeeper needs, and has been very highly thought of at his previous clubs. We look forward to working with him and developing his talents further.

“With the addition of Marco Marosi and along with Corey Addai, we have good competition in this area of the squad and they will push each other forward under the guidance of our new goalkeeping coach Aled Williams."
