The 36-year-old, who played for Coventry between 2000 and 2002, rejoined the Sky Blues earlier this month after leaving Birmingham City.

Manager Aidy Boothroyd said: "As soon as I knew we could get him in I decided he would skipper the team.

"He a natural captain and won't take anybody not giving their all."

Boothroyd added: "Any captain has to lead by example and if you look at Lee's track record it shows he is used to playing in winning teams.

"Not only will he be our captain but he'll help me, the players and the staff build a character here that doesn't accept mediocrity and push people to be all they can be."

The former Republic of Ireland player said: "I left Coventry shortly after they were relegated from the top flight, so I've some unfinished business here. Hopefully I can leave the club in a better position than I did before."

Carsley may play some part in Tuesday night's friendly at Shrewsbury.
