Coventry have signed Dominic Hyam following the defender's departure from Reading.
The 21-year-old, who came through the youth ranks at the Madejski Stadium, has put pen to paper on a two-year contract and will officially become a Sky Blues player on July 1 when his deal at Reading expires.
"Dominic is a strong and aggressive centre half, who comes from a very good academy set-up at Reading," Coventry boss Mark Robins told the club's official website.
"His time there has ensured that he has all of the attributes to be a quality defender.
"He has also spent time on loan in men's football, which is an experience which will undoubtedly benefit him and us.
"Dominic is another player with potential who we've brought in to develop and strengthen the club as a whole, not just the first team. Dominic will be expected to push for a place in the first team, and adds depth and further quality to an important position."
Hyam has had loan spells at Dagenham & Redbridge and Portsmouth and most recently Aldershot. He has also been capped by Scotland at Under-19 and Under-21 level.
