Solihull Moors are interested in signing Kyle Storer as his Cheltenham contract winds closer to expiry, reports Gloucestershire Live.

Storer is a very well established name in the National League, having turned out for Tamworth, Kidderminster, Wrexham and current club Cheltenham in the division, amassing over 250 appearances in the division.

He was a key part of the squad which gained promotion from the National League in 2016, starting all of Cheltenham’s 46 league games as The Robins romped to the title and promotion back to the football league at the first time of asking.

His time at Cheltenham has been marred somewhat by an infamous incident on the final day of the 2015-16 National League season. Storer was handed a yellow card after biting Lincoln’s Bradley Wood, but, after an FA review, the central midfielder was handed an 8 game ban and fined £750, delaying the start to Storer’s football league career.

Whilst Cheltenham have been in League 2 Storer has gained captaincy at Whaddon Road, but struggled to cement his place in the team, only making 23 appearances for the club in their return season to the football league, with matters not helped by a reckless challenge and failed appeal earning the skipper an additional 4 game ban.

This term however, he has already surpassed the number of appearances made in the entirety of last season, serving as club captain in every one of his appearances.

Now it seems Cheltenham boss Gary Johnson has deemed Storer surplus to requirements, and will not be renewing his contract, meaning a move to Damson park, to link up with former Robins manager Mark Yates, could be on the cards.

Yates is not only interested in Storer either, it seems, with Cheltenham team mate Danny Wright’s contact also expiring, and Cheltenham seemingly having little interest in renewing the 33 year old’s deal, a move to Moors for the Norwich born striker could be on come the end of the season.
