TRANSFER: Martyn Waghorn joins Coventry City!

2 July 2021

Coventry City are delighted to announce the signing of Martyn Waghorn.

The forward has signed a two-year contract with the Sky Blues until June 2023.

The 31-year-old joins City after following the expiry of his contract with Championship rivals Derby County, where he had been for the last three seasons.

Waghorn started his career with then Premier League side Sunderland in 2007. Following loans with Charlton and Leicester City, he made the move to The Foxes a permanent one in 2010.

During a four-year stay at the King Power Stadium, he received England Under 21 recognition and had loan spells with Hull City, Millwall and Wigan Athletic.

Impressive form at Wigan earned a permanent move there in 2014 before he joined Rangers in 2015. His 20 goals helped fire Rangers to the Scottish Championship title and promotion back to the top-flight, netting another 16 in his second season at Ibrox prior to joining Ipswich Town.

One season in the Championship with the Tractor Boys saw Waghorn score 16 goals and provide 13 assists, and earn a big money move to Derby where he scored 26 goals in 111 league matches.

Manager Mark Robins said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Martyn to Coventry City.

“Martyn brings with him undoubted quality and pedigree, as well as much experience in the Championship.

“His versatility too will add to the attacking options that we have at the Club and he’ll no doubt be an important influence in the dressing room too.

“We’re very pleased that Martyn has agreed to join the Sky Blues and look forward to working with him.”
