Royals eye up McShane as Mills replacement
Reading are considering a move for Hull defender Paul McShane, following the departure of captain Matt Mills to Leicester.
The 25-year old spent the last half of the previous season on loan at Barnsley and the Tykes were keen on making a permanent move but it didn't materialise.
The Republic of Ireland international has had spells with Sunderland, West Brom and Brighton but is still unsure over his current future with Hull City.
McShane has made 63 appearances for Hull with McDermott being a keen admirer of the Irishman.
However, reports have stated that McDermott won't get to spend a penny of the transfer fee recieved for Mills, at the expense of the clubs unsecure financial situation.
