Shorey on His Way

Shorey on His Way

With Dave Kitson and Glen Little already leaving for pastures new and James Harper tipped to be the next Premier League bound Reading player, it appears Nicky Shorey could be joining the list.

Shorey has made no secret of his desire to leave the club as far back as last January and the powers that be at Reading admitted they would not stand in the players way should he get the opportunity this summer.

Interest seemed to have cooled in the England international, after a mediocre season spawned by his intent to leave the club, it does seem however that Shorey will get his wish of a return to the top flight, with Harry Redknapp`s Portsmouth looking the likely destination.

Redknapp has admitted he is a keen admirer of Shorey`s talent and since Shorey`s best friend Glen Little joined the south coast club, speculation has mounted regarding Shorey`s future.

Sulley Muntari`s expected big money move to Inter Milan will give Redknapp money to burn and the Pompey manager will now look to swoop for Shorey.

The left-backs future seems to all but certainly be away from Berkshire following his admission from a full-strength line-up for Reading`s first game of their Sweden tour, with winger Stephen Hunt filling the left-back berth.

Shorey has been a great servant for Reading since his arrival in 2001, but his heart has not been in it recently, and fans will agree that it is best for both parties for the former Leyton Orient man to move.

Expect the deal to go through sooner rather than later, with Dagenham`s Scott Griffiths being lined up as a possible replacement.

Yes, we'll have him at Villa Park, send him our way. I'd prefer Warnock at Blackburn, but I cant see them letting him go.
