Coventry City have announced the signing of Arsenal midfielder Ben Sheaf, which has drawn an excited reaction from fans of the Midlands club.
The Sky Blues are preparing for life in the Championship after they won League One and secure promotion last term.
The club have been busy in the summer window as they look to ensure that Mark Robins has the tools he needs for a successful season, landing a string of impressive young players such as Callum O’Hare and Tyler Walker.
Coventry announced their newest arrival this morning, revealing that Sheaf had become their eighth signing of the window.§
The defensive midfielder impressed on loan with League One rivals Doncaster Rovers last season and looks set to give Robins’ side some more control in the centre of the park.
Sheaf joined Arsenal from West Ham United in 2015 and in addition to being a regular in the Gunners age-group sides, featured twice for the senior side.
Can you name where each of these 14 ex-Coventry City players are playing now?
The 22-year-old’s arrival looks a shrewd bit of business from the Sky Blues and certainly appears to have gone down well with many fans of the club.

Our recruitment team are so smart. Loan with an option to turn it permanent is very smart. Welcome aboard Sheaf. Another defensive midfielder was what we needed and we've got it. #PUSB https://t.co/9xYdHtSTrs
