Last updated : 31 January 2018 By CNS Sport

Coventry City have sold Ben Stevenson to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The midfielder who came through City's Academy and U23's made 48 appearances for City but struggled to get in this season.

He has joined Wolves for a fee reported to be worth around half a million pounds plus add-ons and told Wolves club website: "I’m really happy to sign for such a massive club with big aspirations, it’s a big personal achievement for me.  

"As soon as I knew of the interest I wanted to jump at the chance of joining such a big club.  

"I’ve been at Coventry since I was 8 years old, it’s the only club I’ve ever been at so it’s got a big place in my heart and I’ll always thank them for everything they did for me but it’s time for me to go the next stage of my career. 

"Coming here to start in the Development Squad, I don’t see it as a step down, it’s going to be a really good standard, there's a lot of good players and it’s the right environment to help me get better.

"One of the things that attracted me here is the amount of players who have come through the Academy and have been around the first team, I can see the pathway to it so I just have to set myself the goal to get there.

"I like to get on the ball, receive it and pass it, I’m a possession type player and I think that fits in well here."

Wolves have loaned Stevenson strraight out to Colchester United for the rest of the season and he could face the Sky Blues on February 13th.
