The Coventry City manager says he's disappointed with the departure of George Thomas.

The 20-year-old has signed a three-year deal at Leicester City.

We are disappointed George has come to this decision. He is a fantastic lad and everyone associated with Coventry City wish him all the very best.

Hopefully our paths can cross again at some point in the future.
