FABIO Tavares has signed a new deal with Coventry City to remain with the club until 2025.
The 21-year-old broke into the first-team towards the end of the 2021/22 campaign and scored a memorable last gasp equaliser with a superb strike against Preston North End.
That came after making his Sky Blues debut from the bench against Barnsley in February before netting his first Championship goal against Preston later that same month in just his second appearance.
He went on to make seven Championship appearances for Mark Robins’ side having spearheaded the under-23’s to Professional Development League success, finishing as the league’s top goalscorer, as the Sky Blues lifted the trophy at Ashton Gate.
Tavares told ccfc.co.uk: “I’ve been waiting for a little while to get it all done and I’m buzzing I can’t lie; I love it here and I’m happy to sign.
“I just want to continue playing here and keep getting better and playing in front of the Sky Blue supporters.
“I’ve been working really hard since I came in and I’ve been biding my time and making the most of what I’ve been given.
“So, I feel like it’s a reward for myself for what I’ve done and for what more is to come if I keep going the way I have been.”
The young striker, born in Matosinhos, Portugal, joined City from Rochdale in January 2021 and initially linked up with Coventry’s Development squad.
