Coventry have announced the signing of former Nice and Auxerre defender Kevin Malaga on a three-year deal.
The 25-year-old centre-back was a free agent after his contract with the French side expired at the end of last season.
Malaga will join the Sky Blues for their pre-season tour of Scotland.
"We've done our homework on Kevin and we're really pleased to bring him to the club because I know that several other teams were keen to get him, including a Premier League side," manager Andy Thorn told the club's official website.
"He's been with us for a couple of days and the other players have really taken to him.
"His style will suit us because he's a good footballer, but he's also strong too and will be a very good addition to the squad."
