COVENTRY CHIEF REVEALS ALL

Coventry City chief Tim Fisher says the club's landlords at the Ricoh Arena, ACL, rejected a deal that would have seen the Sky Blues stay at the stadium.

Fisher claims the club were forced to seek a move away from the ground after ACL turned down the club's bid to stay at the 32,609-seater venue for three years while they built their own stadium.

He said ACL “refused to negotiate a sensible exit strategy – effectively a longer version of the three-game deal we did last season.”

The League 1 outfit have not yet confirmed where they plan to build their new stadium, or where they intend on playing matches next season.
