Coventry City have completed their third summer signing, with the arrival of Mikkel Bischoff on a free transfer from Manchester City.
The 24-year-old Dane put pen to paper on a two-year deal, which commits him to the club until June 2008.
Coventry manager Micky Adams, who signed a new three-year contract last month, has already added striker Wayne Andrews and defender David McNamee to his squad this summer.
Bischoff, who is a central defender, originally signed for Manchester City from Danish side AB Copenhagen in 2002 has had loan spells at both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield Wednesday last season.
"Mikkel is a competitive defender with great pace and at 24-years-old, he fits the profile of the kind of player we are looking for," said Adams.
"He went to Manchester City for a fee of £750,000 having achieved a big reputation in Denmark and I feel that his potential has yet to be fulfilled. We're hoping that will happen here at Coventry.
"There were lots of other football clubs interested in Mikkel, both in the United Kingdom and abroad, so we're delighted that he's committed himself to Coventry City."
Meanwhile, the Sky Blues' home friendly against Boavista on July 29 will now kick-off at 7.45pm, not 3pm as previously announced. ..SUPL:
