COVENTRY City have made their seventh summer signing, after snapping up Josh Pask from West Ham United.

The 21-year old defender has signed a three-year deal with the club, after being released by the Hammers.

Pask has been at the East London club for 13 years, appearing in the Checkatrade Trophy in 2017/18 and 2018/19, but failing to make a senior appearance for the club.

He has made ten appearances in League One to date, whilst on loan with Gillingham in 2016/17 where he made 15 appearances in all, which followed a six appearances for Dagenham & Redbridge in League Two in 2015/16.

He now hopes to kick on and challenge for a place in the Sky Blues side next term.

Manager Mark Robins says he expects Pask to benefit his team with his previous experience in the league.

“I’m pleased we’ve had the opportunity to add Josh to our squad, and look forward to working with him,” he said.

“He is a strong and versatile defender, who has a maturity to himself and his game beyond his years.

“Coming through the West Ham Academy, he is a player with great pedigree and has experience of this league already, and I hope Josh will prove a great asset for us.”
