Coventry City new boy Leo Ostigard is hoping to prove a formidable opponent in the Championship this season.

The central defender has joined the Sky Blues on a season-long loan from Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Norway Under-21 international spent last term on loan in Germany with St Pauli.

The Bundesliga 2 side were keen to retain his services, while Brighton technical director Dan Ashworth revealed that there had been plenty of interest in the 20-year-old both at home and abroad.

Ostigard has ended up at Coventry, though, and will be keen to make his mark in the second tier of English football in 2020-21.

“It feels good, and I’m happy to be here,” he told Coventry’s official website.

“It will be an interesting season for me and the team and I’m just looking forward to it and I’m happy to be here.

“I’m a player who wants to play and show what I’m here for and show my qualities, so I will hopefully show you some great things and hopefully help the team and that’s the most important thing.

“You never know in football and that is the best thing, so anything can happen this season.”

As for what Coventry fans can expect from him, Ostigard added: “I like to defend first and foremost. I like to tackle and win duels and I also like to play good football, so I think you will like what you see, and I will do my best.

“I would say my biggest strength are my headers and I don’t think I will lose too many this season.”

A bold claim – and one the Sky Blues faithful will be hoping is borne out during the upcoming campaign.
