Former Sheffield Wednesday defender Reda Johnson is looking forward to working with Steven Pressley at Coventry

Reda Johnson is pleased to have joined Coventry City and stated that manager Steve Pressley was a huge factor in joining the club.

The 26-year old left Sheffield Wednesday at the end of the 2013-14 season, having made 75  appearances and scoring an impressive 18 goals for the Yorkshire side.

The Benin international can play at either left-back or at centre-half and today he told Coventry’s official website: “I’m delighted to get the deal done because it’s a huge club. I’m really happy to be here.

“I’m looking forward to playing games for the club. I will always try my best to help the team and make sure I’m at my best every time I play.

“It is a young team here and I’m here so there is more experience in the side. There are some really good young players here and I’ve been really impressed with what I’ve seen so far.

“I don’t have a best position. I can play left-back or centre-back but I will play wherever the manager wants me to play.”

Manager Steven Pressley was a huge influence on why Johnson choose to sign for the Sky Blues: “I’m looking forward to working under Steven Pressley as he was a defender. It was a big motivation for me to come here,” he added.

“I’m sure I can work with him and get better. He can pass on his experience to me and hopefully I’ll improve as a player.”

The former Owls man has the experience and the know-how to achieve promotion to the Championship and he aims to do so with his new club.
