Coventry City Sign Aston Villa Midfielder Callum O’Hare
Sky Bet League One side have bolstered their options in midfield with the signing of Callum O’Hare from Aston Villa.
Midlands Move For O’Hare
21-year-old O’Hare joins Coventry City on a loan deal until the end of the season.
The Solihull-born attacking midfielder made his debut for Villa in August 2017. O’Hare made eight appearances for the Villans in the 2017-18 season and featured once in Villa’s promotion-winning campaign last term.
O’Hare, an England Under 20 international, joined Carlisle on loan in January. He scored three goals during sixteen appearances.
Speaking after signing the attacking midfielder, Sky Blues boss Mark Robins said: “We’re pleased to welcome Callum to the Football Club.
“He is a naturally talented footballer, with great creative ability and an eye for goal too.
“He is at the stage of his development where it is important for him to get regular minutes in league football, and we look forward to working with him this season.”
Reflecting on his time on loan with Carlisle, O’Hare said: “It helped me massively going out on loan last season.
“Playing in the Football League, it was a massive learning curve and was good experience so hopefully I can use that this year playing for Coventry.
The Gaffer has said to me to just come in here and enjoy it and enjoy my football and that’s what I want to do and hopefully I can do well.”
In regards to signing for Coventry City, he added: “I’m buzzing to finally get the deal done and to get down here.
I’m looking forward to get going and I can’t wait, I like the way they play here, and I think it’s a good club.
“I want to get more experience and hopefully do something really good with the team.
“As I said, I’m feeling good, I’m buzzing and I can’t wait to get started.”
