One year loan deal for former player. Another former Coventry City player has rejoined the club. Lee Carsley has joined from Birmingham City on a one year loan deal. He joins Gary McSheffrey in returning to his former club. The 36 year old Carsley, who played for Coventry City from 2000 to 2002, before leaving to go to Everton, will go straight into the squad to face Walsall on Saturday. City boss Aidy Boothroyd said, "Lee has a track record as a winner. He is leader and has played at the highest level and knows  what is required to win on a regular basis." "Any good team needs a balance of talent, experience, physical presence, pace and, obviously, footballing ability. I want Lee to be the glue that binds the team        together because he has all of those." Carsley is the fifth signing since Boothroyd was appointed manager.
