New signing Julien Dacosta hopes to help Coventry City write “another page” in their history, as they prepare for Championship football.
The defender became Mark Robins’ second signing of the summer today when he put pen to paper on a three-year contract, following his exit from French Ligue 2 side FC Chamois Niort.
He followed Gustavo Hamer in making the move to the Sky Blues, on the back of the club’s promotion to the second tier.

Confirmation of Dacosta’s arrival ended what has been a lengthy pursuit of the 24-year-old, who was linked with several clubs before joining City.
And now that he is here, Dacosta is eager to get started.
In a recorded message on the club’s Twitter account, he said: “Hello fans. I’m very happy to have signed for Coventry.
“This is a very big club, with a great story. And I hope to help write another page of this story.

“I’m in a hurry to wear the Sky Blue jersey in the Championship and make the supporters proud.
“Go Sky Blues!”
Boss Robins has said of his latest addition: “He’s a pacy and powerful defender, who also brings attacking attributes to the side. Predominantly a right-back, Julien is versatile and can also play left-back too.
“Julien is a player we’ve been monitoring for some time now and has been linked with other sides as well, so we’re pleased to secure his signature and we’re looking forward to working with him.”
