Last updated : 23 January 2017 By CNS Sport

Coventry City have signed Charles Vernam on loan.

Vernam joins on loan from Derby for the rest of the season and has played three times for Derby U23's in the EFL Trophy this season, meaning he is cup-tied for tomorrow night.

"He has an extremely impressive scoring record at under-23 level," said City manager Russell Slade. "He's been on the verge of Derby's first-team set-up for a while now.

"A number of clubs were monitoring him so we're especially pleased to have bought him to Coventry. Charles is clever and intelligent with his movement, and is also a clinical finisher."
