Coventry City complete the signing of Yakubu Aiyegbeni

Ex Super Eagles Yakubu 'the yak' Aiyegbeni has completed signing for English lower league side Coventry City.

The 34-year old agrees terms until the end of the season after a recent spell in Turkey...
The Sky Blues have completed the signing of ex-Everton talisman Yakubu on a deal running until May 2017, pending international clearance.
The 34-year old brings a wealth of top flight experience, having made over 400 professional appearances and scored over 170 career goals. The forward had a brief spell in Turkey last season, featuring on twelve occasions for Super Lig outfit Kayserispor.
After spells with Portsmouth and Middlesborough, the 'Yak' joined Everton in 2007, for a reported figure of £11.25m, a record fee for the Toffees at the time.
The frontman netted over 130 senior goals in England, during a nine year stint, playing in the top flight for Blackburn, Portsmouth, Middlesborough and Everton, and in the Championship for Leicester and Reading.
Yakubu takes the shirt number 22.
Russell Slade said : “We’re pleased to have secured the signing of Yakubu, who brings vast experience and a terrific goal record.
“His professional career speaks for itself, having scored consistently at the highest level of English football, and will act as a superb role model for the younger players.
“He is astute on the ball, has clear quality and presence, and we’ll continue to work on his match fitness as we prepare for the final 16 games of this season.
