According to the Coventry Telegraph, Portsmouth defender Tom Davies could be on his way to Coventry. Davies hasn’t played a league game for Kenny Jackett’s side so far this season.

However, National League side Tranmere Rovers are also interested in signing the 25-year-old  but, the centre-back is more interested in a move to the Sky Blues.

The Warrington born defender spent his youth career with Blackburn Rovers and Man United, but he was never given a professional contract. Davies started his senior career with non-league side F.C. United of Manchester. He didn’t break into the Football League until 2015 when Accrington Stanley picked him up.

Davies was part of the Stanley side which reached the League Two Play-Offs. He signed for Portsmouth in 2016, and he played twelve league games as Pompey won the League Two title.

But Davies has since been dubbed surplus to requirements by Kenny Jackett as he looks to find the best center-back pairing.

Portsmouth currently occupy 14th spot in League One. After beating Rochdale 2-0 on the opening day they have: lost 3-0 to Oxford and they drew 1-1 to Walsall and Wigan.

Coventry boss Mark Robins stated that the club “would need to win the lottery” to make another signing. However, he has since come out and said “We may have won the lottery. The club have been brilliant and they may be able to help me do something.”

Coventry currently sit tenth in League Two after back-to-back defeats against Newport and Yeovil respectively. They face Chesterfield away next week.
