Leon Best today left the ‘boo’ boys behind and joined Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee on a three and a half year deal which should see him playing next season in the Premier league.

Sky Blues chairman Ray Ranson said: “The situation with Leon’s contract has been well documented.

“When it was apparent that we couldn’t agree terms for him to remain at Coventry City, we knew we would have to listen to offers and act in the best interests of the club.”
