Coventry City: New signing Ostigard reveals ‘dream’ Championship move

Coventry City: New signing Ostigard reveals ‘dream’ Championship move - Coventry City News

New Coventrty City signing Leo Ostigard has spoken for the first time since he completed what he calls a ‘dream’ move to the Championship club.

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins has had a busy summer after sealing promotion to the Championship, bringing in the likes of Gustavo Hamer, Julien Dacosta, Marcel Hilssner, Callum O’Hare and Ryan Giles.

Adding to that list, Ostigard has now arrived on loan from Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion to add depth to Coventry’s defensive line up.

Valued at £2.25m by Transfermarkt, the defender has now penned a one-year loan deal with the Sky Blues.

Speaking about his move to Coventry, the defender told the club’s official website that it was a ‘dream’ to make a move to the Championship.

“It’s always been a dream to play in the Championship and to come here and play for a team who went up last season is good for me and you never know what will happen.

“I think we will see some great things from this team and we will run and fight to be in this league so I think it will be a good move for me and I hope it will go well.

“I hope I will have a great time and I’m really happy to be here, I’m just going to take it step by step and we will see what happens.”

Norwegian defender Ostigard signed for Brighton after coming through Molde’s academy and he spent time on loan with German second division side St Pauli last term in order to gain first team experience.

Another superb addition from Robins to bring in Ostigard and one that will further enhance Coventry’s squad for the better.

Whilst the Sky Blues may not have the pulling power, financially, to bring in experienced and more well known players, Robins is certainly impressing with his scouting and moves so far this summer.
