Coventry City defender Réda Johnson has now officially committed himself to The Sky Blues for a further year.
The Benin international who joined City on a free transfer from Sheffield Wednesday last summer, signed a new one-year contract this afternoon.
In his first season at The Ricoh Arena, Johnson made 22 appearances, scoring six goals, two of which came on his debut away at Bradford last August.
After an injury-hit campaign, Johnson played the last five games of the season to help City retain their League One status last season.
City boss Tony Mowbray said: “As I’ve stated previously, I see Reda as a crucial part of our plans going forward.
“He stands out at this level in central defence and at the end of last season, our defensive performances were much improved with him in the side.
“It is no secret that we’d like to see him make more appearances during a season but with the help of physiotherapy department, I’m sure we can manage him in a way to help him do that.
“Also, he carries a significant goal threat from set-pieces and if we’re going to succeed, we need goals from all around the pitch next season.”
