The Sky Blues confirmed the signing of Todd Kane yesterday, and the defender spoke of his joy to finally get the move over the line.
Kane joins City for an undisclosed fee from QPR and hopes to play his part in a successful Championship campaign for City this season.
After putting pen-to-paper on the move, the defender revealed how the move came about and why he chose Coventry.
“I’m really happy, it’s been going on for quite a while, but I am over the moon now and I can’t wait to get started.
“I had a conversation and said that I wanted to be happy and enjoy my football again.
“I came up with an agreement with the club and the Manager and the Assistant Manager here got in contact with me. We had a couple of conversations and straight away and I felt like it was the right move for me.
“The style of play, the club’s history, it’s got some really good players and like I said the Manager and Assistant Manager of course played a massive part and I think that is the most important thing really.
“I watched the game at the weekend, and I was sitting there thinking I wish I could have played in that game or been involved, that’s what I was hoping but it went on a little bit longer. I’ve got that buzz and I can’t wait to get started."
Kane is looking forward to fighting for his place in the side and hopes his versatility can prove to be a huge asset for Mark Robins’ side.
“You always need competition, I think that drives people on to be better, and with coming into a new team I can’t wait to get started and show my qualities.
“I’ve played numerous positions, right back, right wing back, holding midfield, left back. I’m very versatile and wherever the manager wants me to play I’ll always try my best and give 100% for the club and just as long as I’m playing that’s all that matters really."
The Chelsea academy graduate has a vast knowledge of the ins and outs of Championship football having previously played in the division with Blackburn Rovers, Nottingham Forest, Hull City and the Hoops before joining the Sky Blues.
“Last year at QPR towards the end of the season we had a really good run. I’ve been at the top of the table, play offs etc, but I’ve also been at the bottom as well but at the end of the day you need to have a good run of games and a bit of consistency.
“Coventry have been doing really well, obviously I’ve been looking out for their results and watching the games and it’s looked really good so far.”
The 27-year-old believes that joining during the international break gives him plenty of time to settle in before City’s next match against Middlesbrough on the 11th September.
“I think that is really important. I can train with the group and get a week’s training with the group to build up to the next game and I think that is really important as well, so I think it’s good timing if I’m being honest.
“I feel really good. I've been training every day and played some games. I think I’ve got four or five 90 minutes under my belt so I’m ready to go and can’t wait to get started.”
