DONE DEAL: Coventry buy Brighton striker Viktor Gyokeres

Coventry City have made their fourth summer signing by bringing in Swedish international striker Viktor Gyokeres from Premier League side Brighton.

Gyokeres, 23, who spent the second half of last season on loan with the Sky Blues, has now signed on a more permanent basis, on a three-year deal.

He follows Arsenal's Ben Sheaf, Sheffield United goalkeeper Simon Moore and Derby striker Martyn Waghorn.

They have also signed Ricardo Dinanga, 19, from Cork for their Under-23s.

Like Sheaf's move from Arsenal, the Sky Blues have again had to pay an undisclosed fee for Gyokeres.

He was on loan for the first three months of last season with another Championship side Swansea City before being recalled from loan to join Coventry in the hope of getting more game time.

"Viktor is a talented striker with good power, pace and movement, and great potential," said boss Mark Robins. "He showed a terrific attitude when he was with us on loan.

"He grew in confidence, and we hope that he will continue to show the same improvement and desire."
