19 May 2017

Coventry City can confirm that Rod McDonald has agreed a contract with the football club and will officially join the Sky Blues on a transfer from Northampton Town on 1st July.

The 25 year old central defender has put pen to paper on a two year deal with the Sky Blues.

Starting his career with firstly Man City and then Stoke City Academy, the 6 foot 3 left footed defender had spells at Oldham, Hereford United and AFC Telford among others. He signed for the Cobblers in 2015 after a successful trial.

In total, McDonald made 37 appearances for Northampton, scoring 3 goals, and won the League Two title in 2016.

Manager Mark Robins said: “I am delighted we have signed Rod, who is a player who was interesting a number of clubs.

“Having met him and spoken with him about our plans, he made his mind up quickly that Coventry City was the Club he wanted to join.

“I’m really looking forward to working with Rod. He is a quick, strong and aggressive centre half, who can also read the game well.

“Rod is still fairly young and has great potential but still has experience at this level, having won promotion at Northampton.

"We are looking to add further to the squad in the coming days."
