“He’s excited to be part of the squad for the season ahead and continuing his development with us. We’re looking forward to working with him, and I’d like to thank Crystal Palace for their co-operation in getting this transfer done.”
Adaramola has joined the Sky Blues from Crystal Palace on-loan and could make his debut against Sunderland on Sunday.
