Both clubs have confirmed that Chelsea defender Jake Clark-Salter is on loan for the season at Coventry City.
The move is the result of two seasons at Birmingham City over the past two years.
Both clubs confirmed their move.
The defender will join Coventry in the 2021/22 campaign and will face fellow Chelsea defender Jan Maatsen, who is loaned to Coventry.
During Clark-Salter’s stay at Birmingham, he played 34 games for the club.
Previously, the defender spent time at Vitesse Arnhem at the Eredivisie and Bristol Rovers of the first league.
Former Clark-Salter youth coach at Chelsea Adi Viveash is the current assistant coach at Ricoh Arena and the pair will work together again during the loan as Coventry hopes to stay in the championship this season.
The Sky Blues kicked off with the best possible start, beating Nottingham Forest 2-1 and winning in the last minute on their return to the Ricoh Arena.
Clarke-Salter played for Thomas Tuchel in the preseason, but was judged to be overkill when Kurt Zuma, Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen returned from the squad.
Clark-Salter academy graduate Trevo Chalobah has overtaken him in the pecking order, impressing Tuchel in the preseason, but he could also be set to go on loan this season.
Clark-Salter’s first words
Speaking after signing with Coventry City, Clark-Salter said: “Coventry always plays great football and that’s what attracted me here, they want to play good, broad football, so I was very impressed.
“I’m happy to be here at last and I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s game against Barnsley and hope we can get a good result.
“The league is very demanding on physical activity, but now I’m 23 years old, and I feel like I have a grown-up head on my shoulders, and now I just really want to go out.
“I am an aggressive defender, I am quite fast and I like to play forward, play with the ball, pass it through the channel and play through the lines, anticipating danger.”
