Coventry defender Tom Davies has been linked with Bristol Rovers according to reports from the local media. The defender is set to be a free agent this summer after the club decided not to activate the additional year option in his contract.

According to CoventryLive Bristol Rovers coach Graham Coughlan is keen on signing the sturdy defender in the summer. It is understood that the club would offer the player a contract in the coming days which would see him join former teammates Abu Ogogo and Johnson Clarke-Harris at Rovers.

Davies spoke to the local media revealing the extent of the situation between him and Coventry City. According to the 27-year-old, there was an agreement that the club would activate the additional year on his contract unless the club saw a better defender in the market.

He insisted that he has no regrets about the way the situation occurred as the club had been straightforward with him. This looks to be the case as the Coventry City decided against signing the defender for another year

The club moved quickly to sign Kyle McFadzean as his replacement meaning that Davies would have to look for a club in the offseason.

The tough-tackling defender has not played a lot of games in during his time at the club featuring mainly as a sub. He played a total of 50 matches for the League Two side. A move to Bristol Rovers could be what he needs to rediscover his form.

Davies is known as a tough defender to beat, excellent aerially and would be a good addition to the Bristol Rovers squad. It is still early days and there could be an unexpected twist on the way as other clubs could be lining up offers for the defender.
