Swanson becomes the Sky Blues' first signing of the summer.

"Danny is an exciting, technically gifted footballer who provides a real threat out wide and I'm delighted to get him in," said Coventry boss Steven Pressley.

"We were not the only club looking to sign him so to get a deal done that brings him here is great news.

"He's got great footballing intelligence, he has a great attitude and he's hungry for success which makes him a perfect fit for us."

Swanson started his professional career in Scotland with Berwick Rangers, making 44 appearances and scoring four goals before sealing a move to top-flight club Dundee United in 2008.

The attack-minded playmaker made 107 appearances and scored 12 goals for the Tangerines before being snapped up by Peterborough United in 2012.

The 27-year-old played 79 times, scoring five goals, for Posh during a two-year spell at London Road.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
