Former Academy star ditched by Sky Blues

Former Hammers Academy member Blair Turgott has been released by Coventry City, just four months after signing on a free transfer.

20-year-old Turgott joined the League One side at the end of the January transfer window having been released on a free transfer by West Ham. However he made just three appearances for the Sky Blues before being told his short-term contract would not be extended.

Despite the disappointment, Turgott maintains he enjoyed his time at the club. Speaking to supporters via Twitter, he wrote: "I would like to thank everyone at Coventry City FC -staff, players and fans. Enjoyed my time and all the best in the future!"

The midfielder made just one first team appearance for West Ham during his time at the club, in the infamous 5-0 FA Cup defeat at Nottingham Forest in January 2014.

He has also spent time on loan with Colchester, Rotherham, Dagenham & Redbridge and Bradford, for whom he appeared as an unused substitute in the 2013 Capital One Cup Final at Wembley (which the Bantams lost 5-0 to Swansea).
