Former Coventry City captain Michael Doyle has joined League Two side Portsmouth following his release from Sheffield United.

Doyle becomes the second former City midfielder to join Pompey in this transfer window after Adam Barton joined the South Coast side last week.

Doyle said: “I’m happy that it’s all done. Now I want to crack on and try to help this club move back up through the divisions again.

“This is a massive club and if you achieve something here then you’ll always be remembered.

“There’s a lot of pressure when you’re at a big side and I’m sure it will be no different here, but that’s something I enjoy.

“People will make us favourites to win promotion, so we need to make sure we can live up to those expectations.

“The club are making the right statements off the pitch and now it’s up to us to do a job on it.”

In his time with The Sky Blues, Doyle made nearly 300 appearances before a loan spell at Leeds United and a permanent switch to Sheffield United.

The one-time Republic of Ireland cap, captained Sheffield United to the Play-Offs and Capital One Cup semi-final last season before being released by The Blades.
