Coventry City have signed centre-back Rod McDonald from Northampton for an undisclosed fee.

McDonald, 25, was on the transfer list at Sixfields and has agreed a two-year contract with the Sky Blues.

He is Coventry's third signing following relegation from League One, after striker Marc McNulty and midfielder Michael Doyle.

"He is a quick, strong and aggressive centre-half, who can also read the game well," boss Mark Robins said.

Liverpool-born McDonald started his career at Manchester City's academy before joining the youth set-up at Stoke City.

He later went on to Oldham, Colwyn Bay, Nantwich, Hereford United and AFC Telford United, joining Northampton in 2015 and making 37 appearances for the Cobblers.
