Former Rotherham United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris has agreed a two-year deal with Coventry City.

The twenty-three year old joined the Millers in September 2014 in what was then a record fee (thought to be around the £350,000 mark with add-ons) from Oldham Athletic and he made his debut a couple of weeks later. Jono scored his first goal in a Millers shirt in a televised game against Leeds United, a super twenty-five-yard strike, at the New York Stadium and went on to score another three goals that season.

Jono went on to make just over ninety appearances for Rotherham but only managed eleven goals which wasn’t what Millers fans were expecting from a record signing striker.

While with the Millers and before his loan spell at the Ricoh Arena, Jono also had loan spells with MK Dons and Doncaster Rovers.

After a nasty pre-season injury that needed surgery kept him out of most of the 2016/17 injury, Jono played just nineteen times last season scoring once against Bradford in the Checkatrade Trophy game. In February he went out on loan to Coventry City where he scored four times and helped them to the Play-Off Final at Wembley which he came off the subs bench in the second half for.

This is the second time the striker has signed a deal with the Sky Blues, the first being after he had come through their Youth ranks, making his debut in a League Cup game in August 2010 which made him the youngest player to ever appear for Coventry City at just sixteen years and twenty days old.

All at Vital Rotherham wish Jono ‘all the best’ in his future and at Coventry City.
