Coventry have snapped up Aston Villa left-back Stephen O'Halloran on a free transfer.

Sky Blues boss Aidy Boothroyd has agreed a one-year-deal with the 22-year-old Irishman, who is expected to be formally unveiled on Thursday.

The Cork-born player's progress at Villa Park was hampered by a cruciate knee ligament injury but the defender, who has had loan spells at Wycombe and Swansea, has passed a medical on Monday and agreed terms.

Boothroyd confirmed: "Stephen is a young attacking full-back. He is quick and strong and a good defender with a lot of potential."
