Former Royal on verge of return?
Former Reading defender Nicky Shorey is being linked with a move back to the Royals, according to Sky Sports.
Some sources on social networking site Twitter have also claimed that the deal is extremely close, with the 31-year old currently completing a medical. Nicky's father Steve is still the chief scout at Reading and the former Leyton Orient full-back has hinted at a return to Berkshire.
Shorey is currently a free agent, after his two-year contract with West Brom expired. The former England international made 267 appearances for the Royals during his seven-year tenure, scoring 12 goals. The Romford-born defender also earned two caps for the England team under Steve McClaren in 2007.
