COVENTRY City have made former Chelsea and England youth player Kasey Palmer their first signing of the summer transfer window.

The 25-year-old midfielder arrives from Bristol City for an undisclosed fee and has signed a three-year contract.

Palmer won promotion from the Championship whilst on loan at Huddersfield Town in 2016/17 and then featured for the Terriers in the Premier League.

And Palmer has also enjoyed temporary spells at Derby County, Blackburn Rovers and Swansea City having made 62 appearances scoring six goals during his three permanent seasons with the Robins.

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins told ccfc.co.uk: “We are delighted to welcome Kasey to Coventry City.

“He is a player with great technical and creative ability who we are excited to be working with.

“Kasey will add further quality to our squad, and brings much experience at this level too.”

Palmer, who has one senior cap for Jamaica having switched his international allegiance last year, also revealed that Sky Blues assistant manager Adi Viveash played a big role in his decision to join the club.

Palmer added: “I’m buzzing to get it over the line.

“Since the first time I spoke with the manager and spoke with my old coach Adi, I’ve been keen to get it done and get here.

“From my development at Chelsea, Adi played a big role, and he knows what I can do, I feel like that’s important for me taking this next step and he was a big factor in me coming here.

“The manager wants to play good football, play out from the back and play through the thirds with the number 10’s getting in the pockets.

“It was just the icing on the cake when I met him, but I did quite a lot of research after playing against the club and doing due diligence to get to this point, so I knew quite a lot.”
