Player of the season Marlon King has agreed a new deal to stay with Coventry.

The 31-year-old striker was the leading scorer for the Sky Blues last season, scoring 14 times in 24 starts, and will finalise his contract when he returns from his summer break.

Chairman Ken Dulieu told the club's official website: "We promised supporters we would do everything we could to keep the best players here at Coventry City and this is great step towards that.


"It's really good that everything is verbally agreed and we look forward to completing the formalities. Marlon proved in the second half of the season that he is a fantastic striker and that he is capable of scoring goals.

"We had always hoped we could convince Marlon to stay and have worked tirelessly with Andy Thorn to make this happen.

"We regard Marlon as pivotal to our objective of building a team capable of competing effectively in the Championship and hope this also sends a strong signal to the other players that we are talking to about our ambition for the club.

"That's why we offered him the best deal possible to remain at Coventry City and we are delighted that he has verbally accepted."
