Sky Blues boss Gary McAllister has admitted the Highfield Road club have been tracking the promising shot-stopper for some time.
The youngster had been expected to complete the move on Friday, however once his medical results came back in working order the two-year deal was sealed.
"We've been chasing him for a wee while now and have finally ironed out a few hitches in the negotiations," explained McAllister.
"We're pleased because he's been here on trial and had been to a few other clubs and impressed them.
"He enjoyed the training here and working with Alan Hodgkinson and I think that's what swayed it."
The keeper had earlier been tipped to join a Premiership outfit, with Everton, Sunderland, Celtic and Manchester United all watching the ace in action.
