Coventry City have signed Abu Ogogo after he turned down a new deal with fellow League One club Shrewsbury Town.

The 28-year-old midfielder has agreed a three-year contract with the Sky Blues, which will start on 1 July.

Town captain Ogogo scored five goals in 124 appearances during a three-year spell with Shrewsbury after joining from Dagenham & Redbridge.

He endured a frustrating end to last season, missing out on both of Town's Wembley finals with a knee injury.

"Abu is a natural leader," said Coventry boss Mark Robins. "He is a real athlete and also brings a fantastic work rate and physicality."

Ogogo follows the lead of Shrewsbury team-mate Junior Brown, who also rejected the offer of a new deal with Town to move to City. But Sky Blues left-back Ryan Haynes did last week move in the other direction.
