Yakubu Aiyegbeni

Former Everton and Blackburn Rovers striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni has signed
for Sky Bet League One side Coventry City until the end of the season.

Coventry manager Russell Slade had confirmed the club would be looking
to sign the 34-year-old former Nigeria international if he could prove
his fitness when training with the Sky Blues – who sit bottom of the
league.

Yakubu, who also has Premier League experience with Middlesbrough and
Portsmouth, has now penned a deal that will see him stay at Coventry
until May 2017 – pending international clearance – with the club looking
to avoid relegation to the fourth tier of English football.

“We’re pleased to have secured the signing of Yakubu, who brings vast
experience and a terrific goal record,” Slade told Coventry’s official
website.
