Just when you thought that Andy Rose might stay a Seattle Sounders midfielder, news comes out that Coventry City signed the 25-year-old. Today, Coventry announced that they and Rose reached agreement on an 18-month deal that will start in January of 2016. That means that at 27 Rose will again be a Free.
Rose will be a depth midfielder for them, focusing on more defensive duties than he did during his time with Seattle. The signing comes after a two-week trial where Manager Tony Mowbray found Rose to be physically fit, decent passer and a sponge for tactical information.
We had Andy over for a trial and during that time, he impressed me with his athleticism and the attributes he brings to the position. - Mowbray to CCFC.co.uk
Seattle is now left with only three central midfielders on the roster - Alonso, Friberg and Roldan. With 22 players under contract they have between five and seven spots to fill in total.
Coventry City took only 3 points in their last 4 played, plummeting down the League One table to fourth place. Rose may get his chance earlier rather than later.
