Coventry City set to confirm second summer signing following promotion to League 1



Coventry City are set to land Jonson Clarke-Harris on a free transfer ahead of their upcoming League One campaign, HITC Sport is reporting.

Clarke-Harris spent the second half of the season on loan at Coventry and helped them to promotion via the League Two play-offs.

The striker appeared as a substitute early in the second-half in the final against Exeter City, which Coventry won 3-1.

The 23-year-old is out of contract at Rotherham United and the Millers are not going to renew his deal after they won their own play-off final against Shrewsbury Town to gain promotion back to the Championship.

Clarke-Harris is now set to seal a permanent return to Coventry, where he started his career.

The Leicester-born striker graduated through the Coventry academy but left the club with just one cup match to his name.

After spells with Peterborough United and Oldham Athletic, as well as loan stints with Southend United and Bury, Clarke-Harris joined Rotherham in 2014 and scored 10 goals in 79 games for the club before his return to Coventry on loan in January.

In the second half of the season, the versatile forward, who can play up front or in attacking midfield, scored three goals and grabbed five assists to convince the Sky Blues to wrap up this free transfer as their second summer signing after Zain Westbrooke arrived from Brentford.

The Verdict

Clarke-Harris was impressive for the Sky Blues, showing a level of dedication and hard work which was lacking during his first stint at the club.

He is back where it all began and now he seems focused on rebuilding his career in a familiar environment.

Mark Robins has taken Clarke-Harris under his wing and the striker will be a useful option for Coventry in League One.
