Turnbull makes permanent move to Coventry

By SFC Media Mon 15 Aug

Southampton Football Club can confirm defender Jordan Turnbull has joined League 1 side Coventry City for an undisclosed fee.

The 21 year-old, who spent last season on loan at Swindon Town, has joined Tony Mowbray's Sky Blues on a permanent deal.

Turnbull joined Southampton's Academy in 2007, moving from Swindon Town's youth setup, and featured regularly for Saints' Under-18s and development side up until 2014.

The defender's form saw him represent England at Under-19 and Under-20 youth level, before he enjoyed his first taste of the Football League during a loan spell with the Robins during the 2014/15 campaign.

After spending the 2015/16 campaign back at the County Ground, Turnbull made two appearances for Claude Puel's first team during pre-season, but has now been allowed to make the move to the Ricoh Arena on a permanent basis.

Everyone at Southampton Football Club would like to wish Jordan the very best for the future.
