Tony Mowbray has made his first signing as Coventry City boss by bringing in Tottenham Hotspur youngster Grant Ward.
The Spurs academy graduate has signed on a youth loan until the end of the season. Mowbray, who has yet to win since being appointed as Coventry manager, said earlier this week that the club needed to get more goals to stay in League One.
20-year-old Ward has not turned out for Tottenham’s senior side but did spend 23 games on loan at MLS side Chicago Fire last year, scoring one goal. The winger has been brought in to add flair to a stuttering City side who lie just one place above the relegation zone in League One. Mowbray told the City website:
“We’re delighted to bring Grant into the club at what is a crucial stage in our season. Grant gives us an important option, bringing a level of versatility to our midfield, and we hope he can provide a valuable impact from now until the end of the season.”
Ward will wear the number 38 shirt at the Ricoh Arena and was signed in time to face Chesterfield on Saturday.
