James Maddison Signs Coventry Deal

Coventry City striker James Maddison has put pen to paper on his first professional contract that will see him stay at the club until June 2018.

The 18-year old, who celebrated his birthday yesterday, has penned a three-and-a-half year deal after progressing through the City Academy system since the age of seven.

Maddison has made nine appearances first-team appearances this term and scored his first senior goal in City’s 4-1 defeat at Oldham last month.

The Coventry-born midfielder who can also play up front has also hit nine goals in seven games for the club’s Under-18 team.

Outlining his reasons for rewarding the youngster with this deal, City boss Steven Pressley said:

“I’ve been extremely impressed with James’ attitude and ability which is why we were so keen to secure a long-term deal for him.

“I’ve already shown my trust in him by playing him against Cardiff and Wycombe in the Cup games and he has embraced that opportunity on both occasions.

“Over recent weeks, I’ve challenged James to get fitter and stronger by spending more time in the gym. He has spent a lot of time with our Sports Scientist Pete Tierney and we’re already seeing results from that.

“His willingness to learn and do extra to improve was a crucial reason in offering him his first professional deal. We’re excited by this signing and we believe James can have an extremely bright future at this club.”
