"I'm fit and ready to go. It is a great environment here at the club." - Coventry City's Peter Ramage

10 January 2016

The City defender has also opened up his experiences in the Indian Super League with Kerala Blasters...

Coventry City defender Peter Ramage believes he has a lot of offer the Sky Blues since signing for the club.

City snapped up the experienced defender on contract until the end of the 2015/16 season to bolster Tony Mowbray's defensive options.

The 32-year old, who has previously played for Crystal Palace, Queens Park Rangers and Newcastle United, spent a week on trial at the club before signing with the club.

Ramage admits it is a 'great environment' at the Sky Blues and that he is fit and ready for first-team action with City.

The City defender said: "I'm really excited to be here. It was something that was in the pipeline over the Christmas period to come in and to show what I can do.

"I'm joining a really positive group of players who have created a great environment here and I'm looking forward to getting out there on the pitch.

"I'm fit and ready to go. I came back at the start of December but I was very mindful that something might come up so I've kept myself in good shape.

"I know I've got a lot of experience to offer the team and I'm sure I can have a positive impact on the rest of the season for Coventry City."

Ramage's last club was in the Indian Super League for Kerala Blasters and the Newcastle-born defender admits it was a great experience.

He added: "I went out to play in the Indian Super League and it was an incredible experience and one thing I'm delighted I've done.

"It was something I was really excited to at my stage in life as I always wanted to go and experience football abroad and I'm delighted I did it.

"India is an incredible place. I got to go to the Taj Mahal when I was over there and it is an experience I'll never forget.

"The crowds were incredible over there. At Kerala Blasters, we'd get 70,000 people turning up to watch us at a home game. It was a crazy experience and really happy I did it."
