DEFENDER Jak Hickman has apologised to fans of parent club Coventry City following a 'drunken video' in which he said he was leaving the club.

Hickman, who joined Hereford on loan last season, played nine games.

The 20-year-old said he was leaving before putting a substance into his mouth. He also said money that he had been buying drink shots with was 'light change' and his pockets were 'heavy' and that he had 'a lot of cash'.

In the video he said that he was 'behaving silly'.

Hickman has apologised for the video in a Twitter statement today.

He said: "It's disgraceful on my behalf saying them words, and I'm so disappointed in myself.

"I'm not going to try and condone what I said because it's just not on. I have nothing but love for Coventry City Football Club. I know a lot of people have had their opinion on what they saw and I cannot blame them.

"I'm on holiday with friends and had a drink but that it not an excuse for what I said. All I can say is sorry and try to prove myself to you on the pitch where it matters if I get the chance.

"I and anyone else mentioned are not leaving the club, just to clear that up it was drunken words which were not acceptable."
