HEREFORD have not paid an initial fee to Coventry City for the signing of Kyle Finn, but will have to pay a percentage to his former club if they sell him on in the next 18 months.

Hereford FC have released the news this morning after Coventry claimed an ‘undisclosed fee’ had been paid.

Following the end of the loan spell Hereford have signed the youngster on a permanent contract

This follows the signing on an 18-month contract of fellow midfielder Tom Owen-Evans last week.

Head of Football, Tim Harris told the club’s website: “Kyle is someone we’ve known for a while and has shown a great commitment and desire to sign for ourselves and we are pleased that he has agreed to make the switch and join us on a permanent deal.

“He, like Tom Owen-Evans and several others, have a bright future in the game and it’s important that we look after these players as we ourselves look to progress.

“The whole squad is coming together and the work Marc (Richards) and Will (Morford) are doing on the training ground is showing that we are getting more and more competitive each week, as the recent results against Kidderminster, Chester and Chorley have proved.

“However, we are always looking to improve the squad and increase the competition for places as and when the right player becomes available.”

“After being at Coventry City for many years Kyle feels that the benefit and opportunity to play first-team football in the Vanarama National League North is the best way for him to progress his career.

“He is very ambitious and has very bright future ahead of him, hopefully, he’ll continue to develop as a player over the coming 18 months.”
