Coventry City full-back Jordan Clarke extends contract

Coventry City full-back Jordan Clarke has signed a new two-year deal, with the option of a further year at the League One club.

The 20-year-old came through the youth ranks at the Ricoh Arena, and has already made 53 league appearances for the Sky Blues.

Clarke has also represented England at both Under-19 and Under-20 levels.

He told the club website:  "Coventry is my home club and I really want to help get us back into the Championship."

Boss Andy Thorn added: "He's a bright young talent and because he's played so many games for us already it's easy to forget that he is still only 20."

Meanwhile, Coventry have also announced that Kevin Kilbane has been given the club captaincy for the new season.

Former Republic of Ireland international Kilbane, who only joined the club this summer, told BBC Coventry and Warwickshire: "I've always been a talker in the dressing room.

"Hopefully I can pass on little bits of knowledge on what I've gained over the years.

"Of course it's very pleasing to get the official title, but I just don't want it to change me on the field and certainly off it."
