Coventry City sign defender Reda Johnson

Coventry City sign former Sheffield Wednesday defender Reda Johnson on a one-year deal.

Coventry City have made their third signing in the space of 48 hours after securing the signature of defender Reda Johnson.

Johnson has signed a one-year contract after he was released by Sheffield Wednesday, and Coventry boss Steven Pressley believes that the experience of the 26-year-old can help the younger members of the Sky Blues squad.

The Scot told the club's official website: "Reda is a big, strong, physical centre-half with an imposing presence that also carries a goal threat so I'm delighted that he has decided to join us.

"League One is very difficult one to get out of but Reda has experience of doing just that. He knows the division and he knows what it takes to be successful in it.

"He also brings a level of experience that our younger players can benefit from. He leads from the front, he puts his body on the line and he's a person that can have a positive influence in the dressing room."

Johnson joins midfield duo Jim O'Brien and Danny Swanson in making the move to the League One side.
