Jonson Clarke-Harris back in League One after finalising Coventry switch

Jonson Clarke-Harris will get another crack at League One after joining Coventry on a permanent deal.

The striker spent the second half of last season on loan at the Sky Blues and helped them win League Two promotion.

He was released by the Millers last month and has now agreed a permanent deal at the Ricoh Arena.

 

“We’re very pleased to agree to sign Jonson on a permanent basis,” boss Mark Robins told the club’s official website.

“Jonson was an important part of the squad that won promotion last season, and showed the attributes we know he has during his loan spell with us.

“He brings a strength and physicality to our play which will be important assets for us, as well as his goalscoring threat, and we hope he will have a big impact in League One.”

The striker scored four goals in 21 games and helped the club to promotion via the play-offs, 24 hours after his parent club also won at Wembley.

Clarke-Harris was the Millers’ £300,000 record buy when he joined in August 2014 but failed to live up to price tag and only flourished in patches.

He was reluctantly handed a one-year deal by Millers boss Paul Warne last summer but could not win him over and joined the Sky Blues on January transfer deadline day – signalling the end of his New York Stadium career.

Although the goals dried up for the 23-year-old after an impressive start at the Ricoh Arena, he impressed Robins with his physicality.
