Coventry City have bolstered their defensive options with the addition of Reda Johnson this evening, reports The Star.
Johnson, 26, can play at the centre of defence or at left-back and was released by Sheffield Wednesday after his contract with the Owls expired.
The Benin international has signed a one-year contract with the option of a further year.
Sky Blues boss Steven Pressley was elated to be able to confirm the signing, telling 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 he has decided to join us.
“League One is very difficult to get out of but Reda has the 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 is the fourth signing of the day for Coventry with Jim O’Brien joining from Barnsley along with goalkeeper Ryan Allsop and winger Mohamed Coulibaly, who have come in on loan from Bournemouth until January as a part of the deal which saw striker Callum Wilson move to the Goldsands Stadium.
