Central defender Jordan Willis has today signed a new two year contract with the club, with the option of a third.
Last night at the Fans Forum hosted by the Football Club and BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, manager Steven Pressley revealed he was talking to some of the younger players over tying them down to new contracts, and now Willis is the first to commit his future to the club.
The 19-year-old has made 11 first team appearances for City after making his debut against Southampton in 2011 – at the age of just 17.
Willis has also represented England at under-18 and under-19 levels.
Sky Blues boss Steven Pressley said he was delighted to see Willis put pen to paper on a new deal with the club.
He said: “I have made it very clear since day one that I want our younger players to be at the heart of our squad.
“Jordan Willis is a very talented young defender and we have very high hopes for him at this club.
“He must continue to work extremely hard but his chance will come. And, when it does, he can go on to be a big player for this football club.
“Jordan’s attitude epitomises the values we want to uphold at this football club.
“So we are delighted to see him sign a new contract and we hope he is the first of many to do so.”
