Out of favour Coventry City full-back Jack Grimmer could be set for a return to the Ladbrokes Premiership this summer after revealing that he has held initial discussions with clubs north of the border.

The 25-year-old Aberdeen-born defender has lost his place in the side to Chelsea loanee Dujon Sterling this season and is likely to leave The Ricoh Arena in the summer when his contract expires.

According to reports by Coventry Live, Grimmer has held initial talks with a handful of clubs in Scotland’s top flight and the player could be poised for a return to that level of football seven years on from leaving hometown club Aberdeen.

Grimmer joined Coventry City in summer 2017 after being released by Fulham. The defender went on to make 53 appearances in his first season with The Sky Blues in which he scored three goals but he has featured on just 13 occasions so far this term.

The player helped Mark Robins’ side to promotion from Sky Bet League Two last season while he was named in the division’s Team of the Year. Grimmer scored the third goal for Coventry City as they defeated Exeter City 3-1 in the play-off final at Wembley in May.

The defender made just four senior appearances for boyhood club Aberdeen at the start of his career and he may sense that he has unfinished business in the Ladbrokes Premiership.
