Coventry City have signed Swedish right-back Martin Lorentzson on a free transfer until the end of the season, subject to international clearance.

The Sky Blues have snapped up the 31-year old defender for the rest of the 2015/16 League One season as City boss Tony Mowbray adds to his defensive options.

Lorentzson started his career at Swedish club Sleipner before moving to top flight side Assyriska Foreningen in 2007.

His form for Assyriska attracted the attention of Swedish giants AIK where he made over 120 appearances, scoring 11 goals over a four-year spell and most recently played for Atvidabergs.

City boss Tony Mowbray said: "Martin joined the club on trial a few weeks ago and he has impressed us during his time at the club.

"He played in an Under-21s game against Sheffield United where I thought he showed the attributes needed to defend in League One.

"He'll give us another option in defence and will add plenty of pedrigree and experience to the squad until the end of the season."
