Yakubu Aiyegbeni signs for English side, Coventry City

Super Eagles player, Yakubu Aiyegbeni is back to England after a short stay with Turkish league side, Kayserispor.  The footballer signed a deal with Coventry City until the end
of the season.

Russell Slade, the club's coach who was happy with the deal, told the club's website “We’re pleased to have secured the signing of Yakubu, who brings vast experience and a terrific goal record,” 

“His professional career speaks for itself, having scored consistently at the highest level of English football, and will act as a superb role model for the younger players.

“He is astute on the ball, has clear quality and presence, and we’ll continue to work on his match fitness as we prepare for the final 16 games of this season.”

It is expected that Yakubu, who has scored over 130 goals during his time in England, while playing in the Premier League for Blackburn Rovers, Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Everton, will help push Coventry from the bottom of the league 1 table.
