Wasps CEO Nick Eastwood has told Coventry Live that "Being quite brutal and frank, CCFC have a decision to make and they appear to have made their decision."
Speaking to the newspaper following the open letter from Coventry City, Mr Eastwood said: “My comment was really covering the possibility that if legal action was ended by the courts or by SISU, and the EFL allowed time – by possibly stretching its deadline – for CCFC to approach us, we would consider that."
He admitted that the £100k rent which City pay was not material to their business plan and said: "That's not really our primary focus. CCFC, what it brings, is not material to our business plan but that is not a reason for the decision. "That does not impact our decision making in any way."
Wasps have said that discussions to extend City's tenure at the Ricoh Arena, will not start until the legal action has ended and Mr Eastwood said: "We've made our position clear. I don't think people think it is an unreasonable position.
"I don't think anyone else in our position would be taking any alternative position.
"Being quite brutal and frank, CCFC have a decision to make and they appear to have made their decision."
