The Imps have completed the signing of wing-back Jack Burroughs on a season-long from Sky Bet Championship side Coventry City.

The 22-year-old, who signed a new contract with his hometown club earlier this summer, is equally adept in playing on either wing.

He came through the ranks at the Sky Blues, with 19 first-team appearances - 14 of which came last season as Coventry reached the play-off final.

He said: "I'm at the stage of my career where I need to play games, I was interested as soon as the club showed an interest in me and the style of play suits me.

"I know players who have been here before, such as Lewis Fiorini and Brooke Norton-Cuffy, and they've spoken very highly of the club as well as the supporters - how much noise they can create and how they get behind you. It feels like a good place for me to come, show people what I can do and move forward in my career."

City's director of football Jez George added: "We have concentrated so far this summer on securing permanent signings but, unless something unexpected happens, we will now be concentrating on the loan market to complete the squad.

"Jack is a fantastic addition for us, with the physicality and athleticism we are looking for in this position, ready to play in League One and crucial in our squad build by being able to provide competition in both wing-back positions.”

City are in action at the LNER Stadium for the first time this season on Saturday - secure your seat here.
