'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Royals defender gaining Premier League interests

Young defender Michael Hector is reportedly gaining interest from Premier League side Norwich City and Championship side West Ham, according to SkySports.com.

The 19-year old, current on loan at League Two outfit Barnet, has been a big hit at Underhill. He has been putting in some fine defensive performances that have helped the Bee's move out of the relegation zone and to a Johnstone's Paint Cup Area Final.

Hector is even being dubbed the new Chris Smalling, following his growth from non-league and numerous spells at lower division clubs. He has spent time at clubs such as Didcot Town, Havant and Waterlooville, as well as a spell at Irish side Dunkalk.

The East Ham born defender is out of contract in the summer and would therefore be allowed to speak to other clubs if him and Reading cannot agree an extension in the next few months. However, a club would have to pay some compensation as he is under the age of 24.
