Sky Blues midfielder says longer term deal with City will help him develop as a player

Coventry City midfielder Franck Moussa says he can grow as a player with the Sky Blues after signing an 18-month deal with the club today.

The 23-year-old commits himself to City up to and including June 30, 2014 after scoring four goals in 23 appearances.

Moussa was initially out of contract when Coventry boss Mark Robins brought him to the Ricoh Arena on a monthly contract during which time his has played his way into the hearts of fans.

He said: "The manager wanted me to sign and I was more than happy to do that and I'm happy now that it's done.

"I'm really enjoying my football at the moment and I feel like I'm in a good environment to improve and develop as a player.

"It's a good opportunity for me here and I'm happy to be here and hopefully things can keep going well. At the start of the season the club wanted to look at promotion but the start wasn't great but we're starting to catch up a bit now so we will see where we can take it."

Robins was equally pleased to tie Moussa down to a longer term deal and he added he hoped he could continue to feel more and more at home.

"I was pleasantly surprised that he was out of contract when I came in because I could bring him in and now it's good to tie him down here," Robins said.

"He's a good lad and he's contributed greatly to the run we've been on and hopefully he will be with the club for a long time. He's still got things to learn but he is an honest, hard-working player who will get better and better and it's great to see the way the fans have taken to him and made him feel at home."
