Reports: Five EFL Clubs Offer Coventry City a Groundshare for Next Season

As many as five football clubs have offered to provide a groundshare for soon-to-be homeless League One side Coventry City next season, according to recent media reports.
Reports suggest the clubs that have made offers to the Sky Blues are all in the EFL and in the Midlands with the likes of Walsall, West Bromwich Albion, Birmingham City, Aston Villa, Burton Albion, Nottingham Forest, Notts County, Derby County and Stoke City potentially willing to give them a temporary home.

Officials from the EFL are reportedly looking at a number of venues within a 50-mile radius of Coventry, to assess their suitability as a temporary home for the beleaguered former Premier League club next season.

News of the EFL's groundshare investigations could indicate a willingness by the EFL to soften demands that the club plays home games next season within six miles of Coventry's city centre with several clubs said to be willing to offer the Sky Blues a place to stay.

Coventry are currently facing up to life without a stadium at the end of this season as a rent deal at the Ricoh Arena is in deadlock, with owners Wasps refusing to negotiate until legal action by the club's owners SISU over the sale of the stadium in 2014 ends.

Earlier this week, the leader of Coventry City Council, George Duggins, called on SISU to end their legal action with the council - or sell the club.

Meanwhile, the EFL is due to decide whether the club will be expelled from the League - after 100 years - next month, on Thursday, 25th April.
