Martin joins Coventry on loan

Southampton defender Aaron Martin has joined Coventry on loan

until the end of the season.

The 23 year-old centre-back has already had a spell out on loan

at Crystal Palace earlier in the campaign.

Martin played six games for the Eagles before returning to the

south coast in January.

He will now help Coventry’s promotion push, with the club,

managerless since Mark Robins left to join Coventry, currently

eighth in League One.

Martin scored his first professional goal for Saints against

Coventry in an FA Cup third round meeting at the Ricoh Arena last
