Coventry City adds Haji Wright on permanent deal

Haji Wright has been linked with several European clubs this summer but will now move to the English Football League Championship.

Coventry City has agreed to a deal with Wright’s current club Antalyaspor for a €9 million move to England. Wright signed a four-year contract with the second-tier club on Friday.

“We are delighted to welcome Haji to Coventry City,” Coventry boss Mark Robins said. “He is a quick, powerful striker, and a very good finisher, who will add another exciting attacking dynamic to our play and clear quality to our squad.

“This is a significant transfer for the Club which we know supporters will welcome and be excited by, and we look forward to working with Haji.”

The 25-year-old Wright was linked with both Scottish club Rangers and La Liga side Villarreal earlier this summer. He led Antalyaspor in goals in each of the last two Super Lig campaigns, which included 16 tallies in 2022-23.

In total, Wright registered 31 goals in 64 combined appearances for Antalyaspor.

Prior to his move to Turkey, Wright featured for Schalke, VVV-Venlo, Sonderjyske, and Sandhausen.

He has scored two goals in seven caps with the U.S. men’s national team to date.

Coventry City reached the EFL Championship Promotion Playoff Final last season before losing to Luton Town at Wembley Stadium.
