Coventry City have confirmed the signing of West Ham United defender Josh Pask on a three-year deal.
The 21-year-old has agreed to join the Sky Blues and will complete his move when his contract at West Ham expires at the end of this month.
Pask started his career at West Ham and worked his way through the club’s academy, turning professional at the age of 17, although he never played a first-team game for the Hammers.
The centre-back has spent time on loan with Gillingham in League One in 2015-16, where he made 15 appearances in all competitions and with Dagenham & Redbridge in League Two in 2015, where he made six appearances.
He also featured regularly for West Ham’s under-23 side last season and appeared against EFL opposition in the Checkatrade Trophy.
Coventry finished eighth in League One last season, eight points outside the play-off places and manager Mark Robins will be looking to strengthen his squad in the transfer market this summer.
This could be a good signing for Coventry.
Even though Pask hasn’t made a first-team appearance for West Ham, he is clearly a promising player and his experience of coming through the Hammers’ academy should serve him well.
He’s a strong, versatile defender and a manager like Robins should be able to get the best out of him.
Pask will be hoping to get a chance in the first-team at Coventry next season and it will be interesting to see if he can make an impact in what is a very competitive league.
