Deegan has accepted a three-and-a-half year contract with the Championship club and will officially become a Sky Blues player on 4 January.

The 22-year-old has been followed by several Premier League clubs and Coventry boss Coleman was delighted to have landed Deegan.

"We are delighted to have secured Gary's signature and we believe we have acquired not only a very good technical footballer, but also a very tenacious and hard-working one as well who will complement the players we already have here," Coleman told the club's official website.

"There were a number of other clubs interested in Gary's services, so it was important we moved quickly and I'm very much looking forward to working with him when he becomes eligible for us in the New Year."

Deegan has won the Irish domestic title with Bohemians for the past two years and also impressed in the Champions League qualifiers against Red Bull Salzburg this season.
