“I followed the club last season and until it was possible to move here and now for me it’s great the team is in the Championship and I’m happy to be here.”

Hilßner becomes the fourth arrival since the Sky Blues won the League One title and promotion back into the Championship.

“It feels great to be here.” He said.

“I’ve spoken with the club for a very long time and I’m very proud to be here now everything is finally done.

“I’m a powerful footballer and I bring a lot of power and I think my left foot is very special when it comes to shooting or playing crosses for my team mates and I hope I can help the team.

“The last few years I have played on the wing but in the past when I was in youth football I played down the middle, in the centre as a ten or eight.”

Now, as the former German youth international settles down in England, he has one eye on linking up with his new team mates.

“I think I can start training Friday.
