'Always wanted to come back' - Seaborne

17 January 2014

New Coventry City signing Dan Seaborne believes he can be part of a promotion push at the Sky Blues...

New Coventry City signing Dan Seaborne has said that he is delighted to come back to Coventry on a permanent basis, following his successful spell on loan.

The 26-year old defender, signed from Yeovil Town, is looking forward to playing for the club, and hopes to work his way into the side.

“Everything got sorted relatively quickly, and it’s great to be back permanently,” he said, “There were a few other clubs who were interested, but I had a great time here on loan so it was a no-brainer to come back.”

Seaborne played five games for the Sky Blues on loan, and is already looking forward to making his first permanent appearances. 

But, he is aware that he may have to work hard to gain a spot back in Steven Pressley’s side.

“We have Preston tomorrow, which will be a tough test for us. But the lads have done really well in the games where I haven’t been here, so it will be a good fight to try and get back into the squad.

“I watched the game against Crawley and the back two did really well. Full credit to the lads, they (Jordan Willis and Andy Webster) were great.

“But as a footballer you love that competition, so it’s good for the club for there to be competition for places.”

The Centre-Back believes that he can be an asset at both ends of the pitch for the Sky Blues.

“We maybe haven’t scored enough goals from set-pieces this season, although Andy (Webster) scored against Crawley and pretty much set up the other one.

“But that’s something I’d like to bring to the place.”

Seaborne has experienced two promotions to the Championship already, with south coast teams Bournemouth and Southampton respectively.

The former Saints defender has his sights set on making it a hat-trick by firing the Sky Blues into the League One Play-Off places.

“Looking at the squad and the manager, there is lots of ambition to try and push up the league and into the Play-offs.

“It’s a challenge but it is well within our grasp to do that.”
