Coventry have announced a pre-contract agreement to sign Livingston captain James McPake at the end of the season.
Defender McPake - whose deal with the Scottish First Division side runs out on May 31st 2009 - has agreed terms with the Coca-Cola Championship side and will link up with the Sky Blues when his existing contract at the Almondvale Stadium expires.
Coventry boss Chris Coleman told the club`s official website: "James is an accomplished player who has proven himself at club level."
He added: "He has just the qualities we are looking for and we are delighted he has chosen us despite considerable interest from other clubs."
Coleman also has the option of signing the 23-year-old in the coming January transfer window, although he would have to pay the Scottish club a transfer fee.
