Coventry City are rumoured to be interested in a deal to sign Nathan Baker ahead of the 2021/22 season according to Coventry Live.
Baker is set to become a free-agent in the near future, with Bristol City announcing that he won’t be retained ahead of the new league campaign.
His contract with the Robins is set to expire this summer, and Nigel Pearson’s side don’t see a future for the defender at Ashton Gate.
A move to Coventry City could tempt Baker though, with the Sky Blues retaining their status as a Championship club after some strong performances in the second half of this season.
Mark Robins’ side finished 16th in the second-tier standings this term, and will be keen to challenge for a top-half finish next season in the Championship.
Which Coventry City player has been carded the most in each of the last 16 seasons?
Baker signed for Bristol City back in 2017, and went on to make 133 appearances in total for them, although he found regular game time hard to come by in this year’s campaign with the Robins.
Plenty of Coventry City supporters took to social media to react to their rumoured interest in signing Baker this summer.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
played 3 times for Bristol City last term, all defeats, losing at home 2 -3 to Luton, 4 -1 away to Millwall, & 1 -3 at home to Brentford, booked twice in the later two games. Making 37 appearances in the previous season, when Bristol finished 12th. Maybe worth a gamble on him.

Think I'll leave that one to Robins and recruitment since I've no idea who he is 😂 #PUSB

Good pedigree. Good age. Would take him over relying on a loan. Injuries are a concern, but Matty James has barely played in 3 years and we'd snap him up tomorrow.
