YOUNG defender Jak Hickman has been fined two weeks wages and ‘immediately’ placed on the transfer list by parent club Coventry City following an investigation into a drunken video.

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

In the video taken last month the 20-year-old said he was leaving Coventry City 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 apologised for the video in a Twitter statement the day after its publication.

His apology 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."

A statement released on the Coventry City website today said: “Coventry City can confirm it has concluded its investigation, following the video on social media of Under 23s player Jak Hickman.

“Hickman has been subject to a formal Club disciplinary procedure.

“Hickman has been given a fine of 2 weeks wages by Coventry City for bringing the Club into disrepute – this is the maximum permissible fine the Club is able to give according to Football Association rules for a player on a standard FA contract for a first offence.

“The club also reported the matter to the FA, and they advised us that they would not be taking any action against Hickman.

“Hickman has been immediately placed on the transfer list. Coventry City Football Club will not be making any further comment.”
