West Midlands European MP Nikki Sinclaire has held talks with senior management at Coventry City Football Club.
The Sky Blues have moved away from the city and are going to play their home matches at Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium for the next three years.
Nikki Sinclaire has said she met with club Director Mark Labovitch:
"The talks were positive and a great deal was discussed today about how to engage... other stakeholders.
"I felt that we were making positive steps on moving this matter further.
"We must do all we can for the fans of Coventry City Football Club."
ITV News Central has been told that secret talks between Coventry City and the Ricoh Arena to try to keep the club in the city have failed.
If Coventry is going to buy land to build a new stadium just outside the city, why has it not spoken to council bosses yet?
Why is the Ricoh Arena threatening to sue Northampton Town?
