London based club Brentford FC have today made a second bid for Coventry youngster Ben Stevenson, according to Sky Sports.

Coventry have already rejected one bid from the Bees last week for the player but the Championship side aren’t giving up their chase for the youngster. The latest bid received by the Sky Blues is believed to be in the region of £1.5million.

City currently find themselves languishing at the bottom of League One, sitting in 23rd place on just 21 points. Losing midfielder Stevenson could be a real blow to the side but with great potential and a big career ahead of him, it seemed only a matter of time until clubs became interested.

It could be a case of one in one out at Coventry as Sky Sports also believes that the Midlands based club are close to securing the signing of West Ham’s Marcus Browne on loan until the end of the season. Browne has particularly impressed for the Hammers in the Checkatrade trophy this season, with one of his best performances coming against what could be his new club.

As interest grows for Stevenson, the saga involving Cian Harries and Liverpool continues. The youngster is still training with the Reds and played for their U23s earlier this week. With this in mind it could only be a matter of time until Coventry are waving goodbye to two of their brightest prospects and whether they get suitable fees for both is what will really be of interest to their fans.

New boss Russell Slade has his work cut out to steer the team away from relegation and there will surely be plenty more goings on at the Ricoh Arena before the January transfer window closes.
