Coventry City have secured the signing of Ross County’s talented academy product Josh Reid for an undisclosed fee.
The teenage left-back has been a standout for the Staggies this term as they fight for their Premiership status. Reid has been a key player this season after emerging from the academy but is now heading south.
Talks had been ongoing over whether Reid could return to Dingwall on loan this term but Coventry City will take the left-back down south this month as he signs a long-term deal with the English Championship side, penning a three-and-a-half-year contract.
Sky Blues boss Mark Robbins said: “We are very pleased to announce the signing of Josh, having competed with a number of clubs in England and Scotland for his signature.
“Josh is a young footballer with a lot of potential, as has been shown by his regular and impressive appearances in the Scottish Premiership this season. He can get forward well and is a strong defender too, so is built very much in the modern style of full-back. We’re delighted to complete the signing and we look forward to working with him and continuing his development.”
It’s a blow for Ross County but Reid goes with well-wishes too, the 18-year-old now a shining light for progression from the youth academy to bigger things at Ross County.
