Eastwood seals switch to Coventry

Eastwood was unable to find his best form at Wolves

Coventry have completed the signing of Freddy Eastwood from Wolves in a deal believed to be worth about 1.2m.

The Wales striker, 24, has agreed a four-year contract at the Ricoh Arena.

"The move has been talked about for quite a while so I am just delighted it's finally going through," Eastwood told Coventry's website.

"My aim is to end the season as the club's top goalscorer. I've scored goals elsewhere and that is exactly what I want to do here at Coventry."

Eastwood joined Wolves from Southend for 1.5m a year ago, but had a disappointing spell at Molineux and was widely expected to move on this summer.

He will join the City squad on their tour of Switzerland on Monday.

Coventry chairman Ray Ranson added: "As people will know, Freddy has been a long-term target for us and we are delighted to concluded everything.

"He fits the bill in terms of being a quality player at the right age and will be the fourth signing we have made.

"We told our supporters that we would be strengthening the squad, and hopefully this is further evidence that we are doing just that.

"He fits the bill in terms of age and ability, and we believe he will be a very exciting addition to the squad."
