Coventry City are in ongoing conversations with Ricoh Arena owners Wasps, CoventryLive can confirm.
Reports in the national media have claimed that the Sky Blues are set to, “re-open talks in the New Year,” about a return to the stadium in the city that bears the club’s name.
Mirror Sport reported this week that “there has been progress between cash-strapped rugby club Wasps and Coventry over ending their row” and claimed that Coventry City officials are now “increasingly hopeful” of securing a new lease for 2021/2022 back in the city.
CoventryLive, however, understands that there have been no new developments in terms the situation and that, in fact, conversations continue to be on-going with the Premiership rugby club.
The BBC reported that talks had resumed in early October and that situation remains the case almost two months on.
