Coventry City are delighted to announce the signing of defender Julien Dacosta!

The 24-year-old is the Sky Blues' second summer signing, subject to international and FA/EFL clearance, and has agreed a three-year-deal with the Club.

Dacosta joins City following the expiry of his contract with French Ligue 2 side, FC Chamois Niort.

Born in Marseille, Julien joined his hometown club as a youngster, developing in the academy of Ligue 1 side Olympique de Marseille.

In 2017, the full back moved to Chamois Niort, where he established himself at right-back and made 80 appearances in all competitions.

Dacosta is the second new arrival in a matter of days as preparations continue for the 2020/21 Championship campaign, and following his arrival City boss Mark Robins had this to say:

"We're very pleased to welcome Julien to the Club.

"He's a pacy and powerful defender, who also brings attacking attributes to the side. Predominantly a right-back, Julien is versatile and can also play left-back too.

"Julien is a player we've been monitoring for some time now and has been linked with other sides as well, so we're pleased to secure his signature and we're looking forward to working with him."
