Joe Cole signs for Coventry City…just like this Twitter user predicted

This guy called it!

Former England international midfielder Joe Cole has joined Coventry City on loan.

The former Chelsea man has failed to make his mark at Villa Park but nobody really expected him to make the drop down to League One. Nobody that is, except one Twitter user.

Alex Rhys Winton predicted this unusual signing just two days ago. Perhaps the 17-year-old had some insider info, but it turns out he was a little conservative with the amount of time it would take his prediction to come true.

This is a particularly impressive prediction when you consider the fact that even the club seem surprised to have made the signing of a man with 56 England caps.

Cole has signed on a 35-day emergency loan so he might not actually be around come January, but Alex doesn’t seem to mind that much.
