Coventry City have this afternoon completed the signing of striker Marcus Tudgay on a one-year contract.
Tudgay had been on trial with the Sky Blues for the last two weeks after his release from Championship side Nottingham Forest at the end of last season.
In three-and-a-half years with Forest, Tudgay scored ten goals in 57 appearances whilst also having played for Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton Athletic and Derby County.
City boss Steven Pressley said he was delighted to welcome the striker as part of his squad having worked closely with him over recent weeks.
“There have been a number of things about Marcus that have impressed me and he quickly underlined the reasons why I wanted to bring him here,” Pressley said.
“He’s hungry, he’s strong, he provides just the kind of attacking threat that we think will prove very effective in this division and he also knows how to bring his team mates into play.
“Marcus’ attitude and application over the past weeks have also been first class and he’s showcased exactly the kind of mentality and work ethic that I want to be a cornerstone of this team.”
Tudgay is the sixth arrival this summer following Ryan Allsop and Mohamed Coulibaly from Bournemouth on loan deals, Danny Swanson, Reda Johnson and Jim O’Brien.
