Trio sign long term contracts

Three of Coventry City's brightest young prospects have all signed long term contracts.

Defender Cyrus Christie and midfielders Conor Thomas and Gael Bigirimana have committed their futures to the Sky Blues.

All three have made the move from the Academy into the first team this season and have generally acquitted themselves very well and have attracted the attention of Premiership clubs.

Thomas  flirted with a move to Liverpool while Newcastle are thought to have been monitoring Bigirimana. The deals now mean that if another club wants to sign any of the players, they will have to pay the market price for their services.
