Lee Carsley rejoins Sky Blues

36 year old Carsley returns to Coventry on a one year contract and is available for the friendly on Saturday at Walsall.

Carsley will bring a wealth of experience to City and becomes the fifth signing of the Summer joining Gary McSheffrey, Richard Keogh, Stephen O'Halloran and Roy O'Donovan at the Ricoh.

He played for Coventry City between 2000 and 2002 at Highfield Road before moving onto successful careers at Everton and Birmingham City.

City manager Aidy Boothroyd was delighted to bring this very experienced midfielder to the Sky Blues. He said, on the official club website: 'Lee is a winner and leader and having played at the highest level knows what is needed to win'.

Carsley barely featured for Blues last season but significantly he started 41 games when they were promoted from the Championship in 2008/09.

Not happy with signing Carsley, he is past his sell by date, signing a 36 yr old is not the way we should be going, we want youngsters with ambition not old crocks like Carsley, can't remember him being any good for City when here before. VERY poor signing in my opinion.

Got to disagree bloodnut. We have been signing young players for some time now but we need someone who will take charge when the chips are down and to guide what will still be a young side next season

Well I am entitled to an opinion but only time will tell and if i'm wrong I will say so, and I hope I am wrong to be honest.

He was one of my favourite Everton players and I was devestated when he left 2 years ago. He didn't get as much game time as he deserved last year with Brum but he can make an impact with Coventry. He's a natural leader and isn't afraid to get stuck in. At worst he won't play every week but he'll be on the bench guiding the others and helping wherever possible. Hope he's a big hit!
