Stevenage have completed the loan signing of Josh Reid from Coventry City.

The 20-year-old left-back arrives at the Lamex Stadium for the remainder of the season.

Born in Dingwall in Scotland, he played for home town Ross County before moving south in January 2021, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Sky Blues.

He enjoyed a good year last season with the Championship club's development side, captaining them to success in the Professional Development League Two play-off final against Bristol City.

Stevenage manager Steve Evans identified his fellow Scot as an ideal replacement for the Plymouth bound Saxon Earley.

However, the deal took longer than planned as other dominoes needed to fall.

Evans said: "Josh will provide great competition for Max Clark for a place in our starting XI.

"He is young, strong, competitive and has a good left foot. I have watched him several times playing in the Scottish Premier League and that led to a move south to join Coventry City.

"Coventry boss Mark Robins has spoken highly of Josh’s capabilities, as did players Kyle McFadzean and Matty Godden - both have played for me and know what I want.

"It’s time for the lad to get his career in England up and running. We are delighted to get this done."

Coventry's announcement said: "A Scotland U21 international, he made his debut in the Carabao Cup last season.

"Everyone at Coventry City wishes Josh the best of luck during his loan spell."
