Coventry City have signed Kevin Foley following his release from Charlton Athletic, as confirmed on their club website.

The 32-year-old was signed by the Addicks in August 2016 on a five-month deal and made 20 appearances for the League One outfit, with 17 being starts. Foley now joins Coventry on a deal until June of this year with an option to extend.

Sky Blues boss Russell Slade signed the former Republic of Ireland international when Slade was the Charlton boss earlier in the season and is delighted to have Foley at the Ricoh Arena, “Kevin is a top professional, and will be a calming and mature influence on the rest of the squad.

“He’s capable of moving the ball quickly, and is intelligent in his play. I’m pleased to have such an experienced player join the football club.”

The Sky Blues have already had a busy January transfer window with the signings of Stuart Beavon, Nathan Clarke and Callum Reilly, making Foley the fourth signing within the first six days of the window. The Luton Town academy product is vastly experienced an has a remarkable CV. Foley has won promotion from League One twice and won the Championship with Wolverhampton Wanders. The 32-year-old also won the Danish Cup whilst at FC Copenhagen and was named player of the season four times at Luton and Wolves.

Kevin Foley will add over 400 appearances of experience to a young Coventry team and could make his debut in next Saturday’s fixture against Chesterfield as he is cup-tied for Coventry’s next game.
