Coventry City are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Bright Enobakhare!

The 23-year-old has agreed a two-year contract with the Sky Blues, with the Club having the option of a further year extension, following the expiry of his contract with Indian Super League side SC East Bengal.

Bright is a familiar face for City fans, having had a successful loan spell at the Club from Wolves in the 2018-19 season. After joining in January 2019, Bright played 18 times for the Sky Blues and scored 6 goals, providing 3 assists. At the end of the campaign, Bright’s performances earned him the Young Player of the Year award.

The Nigerian playmaker has Championship experience from his time at Wolves, where he came through the Academy ranks. Making his debut in 2015, Bright played 40 league games for the Molineux side, plus 9 in other competitions, before leaving the Club in May 2020.

While with Wolves, as well as the loan spell at the Sky Blues, Bright enjoyed loans with Scottish side Kilmarnock and also with Wigan Athletic.

After leaving Molineux, Bright had a spell with Greek Super League side AEK Athens before moving to India in January 2021.

Manager Mark Robins said:

“We’re very pleased to welcome Bright back to Coventry City.

“Bright is a very talented footballer who has the ability to turn a game and create opportunities and goals out of nothing.

“We are delighted to have the chance to work with him again.”
