Arsenal's Chuba Akpom joins Coventry City

14 February 2014

Coventry City have completed their second signing of the day with the arrival of Arsenal forward Chuba Akpom on a youth loan deal.

Following the capture of QPR winger Michael Petrasso, 18-year-old Akpom, who had a spell at Brentford earlier this term, has linked up with the Sky Blues until the end of the season.

Boss Steven Pressley told the club's official website: "We've been looking to add options to our forward line and Chuba is an exciting young player who we're delighted to bring in.

"He is a young player who is hungry to prove himself, and hunger is certainly a key attribute at this football club.

"We've got a lot of games left this season and I hope Chuba will be able to help us get the results we need."
