Coventry City have signed Zain Westbrooke from Brentford on a free transfer as confirmed by the club website.
The Sky Blues’ season may not be over yet, they are still in contention for promotion after qualifying for the Sky Bet League Two play-offs, but they are already looking signings ready for next season. And they have now completed their first deal of the transfer window after finishing off the signing for Westbrooke from Brentford. He has signed a two-year deal with the option of another twelve months.
The 21-year-old midfielder had been part of the youth set-up at Brentford but when it was apparent that he was going to be released, they allowed him to join Coventry on a trial basis earlier in the year. He impressed during his short time with the Coventry U23s and now they have handed him a deal. He will join the club upon the expiration of his current Brentford contract, meaning there is no chance of him playing in the play-off semi-final fixture against Notts County.
Following the signing, Coventry head coach Mark Robins said: “Zain is central midfielder with a good range of passing, who will add to the quality we have in this area of the pitch.”
“He impressed me and the coaching staff at the club with his performances and attitude while on trial, which earned him this contract.”
“Zain will begin training with the squad immediately, and we look forward to him continuing his development with us.”
Westbrooke will be willing on his new team mates from the stands when they face Notts County on Saturday.
