Coventry City: Leo Ostigard arrives from Brighton - Coventry City Transfer Rumours

Coventry City have confirmed the signing of defender Leo Ostigard on loan from Brighton and Hove Albion via their official website.

After gaining promotion from League One to the Championship last term, Sky Blues boss Mark Robins has already added some new faces to his squad at the club.

Gustavo Hamer and Julien Dacosta were two of the first players to arrive at the club, whilst Marcel Hilssner has also been joined by former Aston Villa youngster Callum O’Hare and Ryan Giles.

As the new season fast approaches, Robins will undoubtedly be keen to sure up his some other areas within in his squad and his latest signing has seen a defensive addition arrive.

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.

Valued at £2.25m by Transfermarkt, the defender has now penned a one-year loan deal with the Sky Blues which will see him come in and help Robins’ side cement themselves in England’s second flight.

“He’s a player with brilliant pedigree,” boss Mark Robins said after the defender’s arrival. “Leo’s one of the top players for his age in European football.

“Again it demonstrates the policy we’ve got at the club – bringing in young players to help with their careers, help them develop and help us to achieve our objectives during a season.”

Robins’ comments on Ostigard being one of the best for his age in European football is a massive compliment but one that will put pressure on the defender.

Coventry have made some shrewd additions to their squad this summer and fans of the club can feel confident that they may remain in the Championship past next season.
