Experienced midfielder, Matty James joined the Sky Blues on loan from Leicester City for the remainder of the 2020/21 season.

Having started his career in the youth set-up at Manchester United, James was sent out on loan to Preston North End in his early days, before departing Old Trafford and signing for Leicester on a permanent deal.

James racked up over 100 appearances with the Foxes, winning the Championship and Premier League during his time at the King Power Stadium.

Unfortunately for the midfielder, he missed a large chunk of his career due to injuries which ultimately kept him out for over two years of his career.

After enjoying a loan spell at Barnsley earlier in his career, James spent the first half of the 2020/21 season back on loan at Oakwell, before joining the Sky Blues in January of 2021.

James’ experience and performances in the heart of midfielder helped the Sky Blues retain their Championship status, alongside scoring three goals against Blackburn, Millwall and Bournemouth.
