Defender Dominic Hyam has said that he is excited to join Coventry City after his signing was announced today.

The 21 year old defender has agreed a move to the Sky Blues, following the conclusion of his contract with Reading.

“It’s a really big club with big ambitions to shoot back up the league, and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

“I’ve been having plenty of conversations with my agent for a number of weeks now. My first good impressions were huge for me, and that’s what made me sign in the box.”

As well as first impressions, Sky Blues Manager Mark Robins’ ambition and experience in football was key in the Scotland under 21 international putting pen to paper.

“The Manager has good aspirations and good ambitions for shooting up the league. It’s a good opportunity, and a good opportunity to play games and further my career with this club.

“He’s been very welcoming so far. You can see he has a clear vision to push up the league. He has been there and done it all himself, so he is a great person to learn off and I’m really excited about the challenge.”

When asked about previous loan spells, Hyam said that while his loans had been beneficial, he is looking forward to being a permanent fixture in the Sky Blues set-up.

“I think my loan spells will hold me in good stead for League Two. It will be good to be in a first team environment and test myself at this level. I have ambitions to go higher and so have the club, so hopefully you put our ambitions together and we will shoot up and play a better standard of football.”
