Coventry City have signed Everton defender Matthew Pennington on a youth loan until January 4th.

The 20-year old defender had two loan spells at Tranmere Rovers during the 2013/14 season and made 17 appearances for the Merseyside club, scoring two goals. 

Pennington can play in central defence and at right-back, and received a cap for the England Under-19s in March 2013.

City manager Steven Pressley believes the Warrington-born defender will add strength to the City squad over a busy Christmas period.

Pressley said: "Matthew impressed us playing for Tranmere last season when we played against them at Prenton Park.

"He is a versatile defender who can fill a variety of positions across the back-line which will be invaluable over the Christmas period.

"He has featured regularly for Everton Under-21s this season and we're delighted to bring Matthew to the club."
