Coventry City have signed left-back Chris Stokes from Conference side Forest Green on a 28-day loan deal.

The 23-year-old former Bolton Wanderers youth player, who has been on trial with the Sky Blues for the past two weeks, played for the Under-21 side against Crewe on 12 February.

Stokes goes straight into Steven Pressley's squad for Saturday's League One visit to Sheffield United.

He has played 134 Conference games since joining Rovers in 2010.

Stokes was signed for Forest Green by Dave Hockaday, who took over as Coventry's professional development coach three weeks ago.
