Coventry City are being linked with a loan move for Forest Green left back Chris Stokes.

Stokes, 23, had previously been expected to join Yeovil Town but a move broke down after they failed to agree personal terms, according to the Stroud News & Journal.

Following the breakdown of that move, Stokes has spent the week training at Ryton with the hope of earning a loan move.

However, City currently already have five loan players in their squad, and ahead of tomorrow’s game at Preston, manager Steven Pressley admitted the club may realistically only be able to bring in free transfers.

Should Stokes join the Sky Blues from the Vanarama Conference Premier Side however, it would see him link up with former boss Dave Hockaday, who joined the club as the under 21 manager and first team coach on Monday.

It wouldn’t be the first time in recent seasons The Sky Blues have picked up a left-back from non-league, as Chris Coleman signed Chris Hussey from AFC Wimbledon in 2009 when they were still in the Conference.
