FOOTBALL: COVENTRY City have moved to sign defender Tom Davies from Portsmouth for an undisclosed fee.

Davies has agreed a two year contract with the Sky Blues until 30th June 2019.

The 25-year-old central defender becomes City’s 13th signing of the summer transfer window.

Davies started his career in the youth set-ups of Manchester United and Blackburn, before spells at clubs including FC United of Manchester, Fleetwood Town and Accrington Stanley, prior to joining Pompey in 2016.

Manager Mark Robins said he is pleased to complete the transfer.

He added: “I’m grateful for the additional support from the club to do this.

“Tom is an aggressive and strong centre-half, both of which are key attributes in this league, and we look forward to welcoming him to the squad.”
