Coventry have completed the signing of stalwart midfielder Lee Carsley on a one-year deal.

The 36-year-old returns to the Sky Blues eight years after parting ways to join Everton, later completing a switch to hometown club Birmingham in 2008.

He was released by Alex McLeish at the end of last season and now joins Gary McSheffrey in returning to Coventry from St Andrew's. Manager Aidy Boothroyd said: "Lee has a track record as a winner. He is a leader and has played at the highest level and knows what is required to win on a regular basis."

He added: "Any good team needs a balance of talent, experience, physical presence, pace and, obviously, footballing ability. I want Lee to be the glue that binds the team together because he has all of those."

Carsley will be in the City squad to face Walsall in a pre-season friendly on Saturday.
