Confirmed: Coventry City secure third summer signing as Doug King splashes cash

Coventry City have confirmed their third summer signing with the arrival of attacking midfielder Jack Rudoni from Huddersfield Town.

The exciting 23-year-old joins the club for an ‘undisclosed’ fee, understood to be around £5million, and signed a four year deal with the Sky Blues. Rudoni’s arrival was confirmed after the player successfully completed a medical this afternoon before putting pen to paper on the deal which sees him switch from the Terriers, who were relegated from the Championship to League One in May.

He follows hot on the heels of centre-half Luis Binks, who rejoined the club on a permanent deal on Wednesday following his season-long loan at the CBS Arena, while Mark Robins has also signed right winger Raphael Borges Rodrigues from Australian A-League side Macarthur FC last month, and welcomed the delayed arrival of left winger Ephron Mason-Clark after being signed for £4.25m back in the January transfer window.

“We’re excited to welcome Jack to Coventry City," said manager Mark Robins, of the left-footed player.

“He is a talented player with great technical ability, who is adept at getting the ball and driving teams forward and creating opportunities.

“Jack is a young player who we are sure will be popular with our supporters. We are looking forward to welcoming him to the club and to him continuing his development with us.”

Rudoni played 84 games for the Terriers and scored 7 goals, having joined them at the start of the 2022/23 campaign, a season during which he was an ever-present.

Prior to that he was at AFC Wimbledon, coming up through the Academy ranks to appear 106 times and score 17 goals for the Club. His form at the age of just 20 in the 2021/22 campaign saw Jack named AFC Wimbledon’s Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year, adding to being named the Club’s PFA Community champion in the previous season, and subsequently earning him a move to Huddersfield Town.

Born in Carshalton, London, he was in the Crystal Palace Academy in his formative years before joining the Dons as an 11-year-old.
