Coventry City are said to be increasingly hopeful of returning to the Ricoh Arena next season.

The Sky Blues are playing out of Birmingham City’s St Andrew’s for the second successive year, but, according to reports, talks with Ricoh Arena owners Wasps are to reopen in the new year, prompting fresh hope that a lease will be secured for the 2021-22 campaign.

Wasps are said to be struggling financially and while previously there has been a stalemate in talks between the rugby club and City, their current situation could make an agreement more likely.

Discussions over the lease will take place soon, the Mirror reports.

If they do not come to fruition, Coventry do have an option to extend their stay at St Andrew’s for a further year.

However, the end goal for the club is to move into their own new stadium at the University of Warwick, having agreed a partnership with the university.

If City do move back to the Ricoh Arena next term, they will hope to do so as a Championship club. Mark Robins’ men are currently outside of the drop zone, and are three games unbeaten ahead of a trip to bottom-of-the-table Derby on Tuesday night.
