Harper & Rosenior out, Howard & Cummings in!

Whats the point of the transfer window if you can confirm signings after the deadline? Whilst many Royals fans were left disappointed at 5pm on Tuesday, Wednesday morning they were left struggling to keep up with the transfer developments!

Firstly the swap deal involving James Harper and Brian Howard, with Sheff Utd has gone through, both joining on season long loans. That was expected after news broke last night that it had been completed before the deadline and just awaited league approval.

The deals that no one saw coming involve 2 right backs, 1 in, 1 out. Liam Rosenior, who earlier in the week insisted he wanted to stay at the club, joined Ipswich on loan for the season and he was replaced by 20 year old Shaun Cummings from Chelsea for an undisclosed fee.

Cummings spent the last few weeks on loan at West Brom but jumped at the chance of a permanent move to the Madejski Stadium knowing full well his chances at Stamford Bridge would be limited.

The deals involving Howard and Rosenior have yet to be confirmed by either club but Vital Reading has learned that both deals have been already been completed.
