Coventry City sign Jim O'Brien and Danny Swanson

Coventry City have signed free agent midfielders Jim O'Brien and Danny Swanson on two-year deals.

Former Motherwell man O'Brien, 26, was available after turning down a new contract with Barnsley.

Swanson, 27, played 47 times for Peterborough last season but rejected a new deal with the Posh.

On Swanson boss Steven Pressley told the club website:  "We weren't the only club looking to sign him so to get a deal done is great news."

Pressley added of O'Brien: "He is a player of proven Championship quality and his energy, work rate and team ethic along with that quality makes him a perfect fit for us."

The Scottish duo are the first players to join the Sky Blues this summer.
